    My belly dances all by itself, especially when I laugh.
  2. Mine has been doing a jiggle itself lately. I thought it would be a great and safe way to do some exercise.

    I did it for a while until the instructor moved. I was a little to skinny for it. For dancers in the original dance skinny was bad, you must have a belly. Only in the west does beauty equate sexy. In the countries where belly dance originated (there are several different styles) most dances were preformed at marriages, fertility and birth celebrations by matrons and mothers. (What would a young girl know about passion?) In my troupe I was 37 and every woman there was at least 45 to 50. Many had physical problems an the doctor encouraged them to take dance for their health.
