Belly Dance Classes by Purvi Khanna at our Amar Colony Studio:
When we established our academy back in 2008, belly dance was just two-three years old of having become the talk of the town (in India). There is no denying that Hindi cinema had initiated its audience into the culture of Belly Dance with “Mehbooba Mehbooba” in Sholay (1975). However, 90’s folks would strongly recall getting a hold of it with “Shakira Shakira” (are we right or are we right?). The subtle-supple dance style gained so much popularity in the country thereon that today, it no longer seems like a far out style amongst the several iconic Indian dance forms. Not only as a dance style, Belly Dance has gained immense acceptance for its body toning benefits. No wonder why it is also one of the Zumba rhythms. Keeping up with our commitment to flag up the dance and fitness culture, we have been successfully running Belly Dance classes in Delhi for years now. If you dream of mastering those hip hits, figure eights and shimmies, we would be more than pleased to serve you.
It might interest you to know that the germ of Belly Dancing lies in the Middle East of the 18th century. Said to have originated in Egypt as “Oriental Dancing” or Raqs Sharqi, Belly Dance has profound contributions behind its popularity and acceptance from other countries such as France, Turkey, Lebanon and the US. Some theories do suggest that belly dancing has its origins in the ancient Indian times as well but there is no specific record as to exactly when this sinuous dance style started ruling the hearts of the Indians. If your heart is naturally rhythmic to Belly Dance music, we will prepare you for the dance performance that you’ve always fancied.
Belly dance is pleasing to the eye and astonishing more so because one can never understand which step is led by which body part unless they actually give it a try. For instance, one can never guess that the knees are the silent leaders behind those jaw-dropping hip hits. The intricacies of belly dancing lie within the engagement of the right, often neglected muscles wherein the torso area plays most of the part. It is hence why most belly dancers, irrespective of age or body shape, are endowed with a strong core and those sexy V cut abs and obliques. While belly dancing is not to be confused with a workout, it does render vital health benefits.
First and foremost, when you start taking belly dance classes, you simultaneously begin to feel confident and content. Dance, be it any, stimulates happy hormones and when it’s belly dance, you’re sure to experience a happy boost. The more you see your body getting comfortable with the wavy characteristic of belly dance, the more you start feeling free and easy. It is not necessary to have a flat stomach or any number-pack abs to be a good belly dancer. Contrary to “a perfect body image” being considered a pre-requisite, you rather strengthen your muscles of the pelvis and abdomen, and get a sculpted body as you practice belly dancing body toning exercises and steps. Before you know it, you will fall in love with your body and curves, the way they are.
During a belly dance class, you will be constantly reminded of keeping your neck straight, chest lifted, pelvic tucked and knees soft. This essentially improves your co-ordination, posture and personality. Moreover, practicing co-ordination of the arms and the body gives you better muscle control and memory.
Do you experience pain in the lower back or knee joints? Yes, the prolonged sitting jobs can predispose you to such health issues and you must not perform high impact exercises. However, you must give belly dancing a shot as it is low-impact and can be taken at one’s own pace. Belly dance movements aids in the production of synovial fluid, which ensures free joint movements, and with the pelvic positioned towards the front, you will be able to relieve the stubborn low back pain.
To these many natural benefits adds one more for women expecting a happy event. In addition to reducing stress, the slow and controlled belly dance movements increase blood circulation and provide more oxygen to the foetus for its healthy growth. So if you are expecting, we recommend you to take belly dance classes. As for us, it would be a delight to be part of your baby’s journey towards life.
Now you know how turning to belly dancing can be much more than just dancing as it positively impacts your life and health. The trendy Belly Dance-Bollywood fusion is much more enchanting, especially for us Indians, as both the dance forms are significantly expressive and their respective music styles resonate with the hardest of hearts. Come, join us at Delhi Dance Academy for your ride towards realizing your dancer dreams.
