    Default Total new.

    Hi everyone and talk about new? I was watching tv and saw where a lady lost weight doing Belly Dancing and thought oh my that is for me. But how??
    I cannot believe how lucky I was to find this forum board on this form of art.
    I live in Florida and I am just past 50 myself. That sounds awful the age. But hey a young 50.
    As I was reading can someone suggest a good cheap dvd for beginners? I don't know one artist from the othe, so any help would be great. Thanks and look forward to learning and meeting all.

    Default Belly Dance = weight loss?

    Hi,
    I lost weight when I began Belly dancing - not just from Belly Dance - but from walking alot, changing my eating habits drastically and Belly Dancing every day because I wanted very much to wear all the different costumes and dance styles looking my very best

    I recommend Kathy Smith's Flex Appeal if you want an exercise video. It is accessible to beginners, reasonably priced, and much more "belly-dancy" than the Veena and Neena exercise videos I've seen.

    Watch Ansuya on the video, because Kathy Smith (who technically leads the video), doesn't dance as well as Ansuya.

    Welcome to the forum!

    Hee hee - hi there and I'm 55 and just starting. I've always danced in some form but never had Belly Dance instruction before. I'm also a distance runner and much to my surprise I lost about 7+ lbs in my first month without even trying.

    I think some of that had to do with the fact that I need to see my stomach when I'm learning and humiliation makes me want to loose the embarrassment of exposure LOL. AND, very quickly I saw other women of all sizes and ages who where brave and beautiful (to me anyway).

    Best to ya

    Hello Ines!

    I recommend Delilah’s Bellydance Workshop series and Leyla Jouvana’s 21 Shimmies and 1001 Variations, because both cover a lot of different moves.
