I have always loved to dance so two years ago I took up belly dancing. I knew many of the steps from other dance forms, so I am learning to isolate the muscles groups that give this style its unique look. It’s much more difficult than it looks! Plus you need to be able to do it with a smile on your face instead of a look of concentration.
