Belly dance at home continues This video explores some more dimensions of the hip circle. Hip circles help to mobilise the lower back and hip joints, as well as get lymphatic fluids circulating. I've witnessed hip circles assist with helping childbirth to progress. Experiment with slow as well as fast music and see how your hip circles change and evolve in response to the sounds.

Learn to Bellydance With Your Body, Mind and Spirit

I had never worn a tutu, twirled a baton or stood on-stage caked in mum's make-up to perform a cute routine for calisthenics. I was an absolute beginner.
