Why Belly Dance?Yallar Studio

Raks Sharki (aka Belly Dance) is a dance style where a woman can change her identity and explore different sides of her emotions: from sadness to happiness, from anger to sensitivity-every feeling will find its place in this feminine dance style.

Belly Dance improves your heart health, overall muscle strength, balance and coordination, and reduces depression. Belly dancing keeps you young,  improves memory, and additionally, whilst the physical movement of the dance helps reduce stress, anxiety, dancing with others also helps us feel more connected and social.
