    Default The miracle of belly dance

    I recently read how belly dance is a cure for cellulite. So I gazed at my thighs ...say no more....and then I discussed this with a student-friend, she claimed she would prepare to sue me if it were not all gone next time she looked in the mirror
    I have in the past read about it would cure cancer, make me a better person, etc etc but I knew the person involved to be er..rather extreme.
    I was taken- back at this more modest claim in a sensible context.
    OK folks any truth in it?
    What other grandoise claims have you heard and read about the magic of belly dance?
    What am I missing out on promising my students?

    PS. I do know that any exercise is good for one's health

    Well, according to Dolphina in a 2005 interview, belly dancing turns your body into a sex toy. Here is the link: Hour.ca - My Messy Bedroom

    Whoa... did you guys catch the comment posted by Morocco underneath the article?? I think Dolphina has a good gimmick going, but it like Morocco points out it has little to do with actual belly dance or the culture.

    As far as BD being a cure for cellulite, oh how I wish that were true!
