Belly Dance Express

Available worldwide

Take a brief glimpse into the world of belly dance, with this quick class taught by Gillian Cofsky that breaks down and teaches some basic bellydance moves, then strings them together into a fun combination. A quick taste of belly dance to spice up your day, to enhance your femininity, and embrace your sensuality. Note: The lower back can receive a lot of pressure from all of the hip movement, so it’s very important to stay connected through the lower abs at all time and draw the tailbone towards the earth so the lower back stays long and safe. Feel free to take a forward fold anytime during the practice, to lengthen and decompress the lumbar spine.

I can feel that it seriously worked some muscles, but it was so much fun, I hardly noticed during the class. Wonderful teacher.

Excellent class, very clear instruction and I am a complete beginner with belly dance! I'd love to see more videos like this.

Thank you, this is wonderful. Challenging, but makes you feel so good to try it! Hope you'll do even more!

So fun, yet challenging. Maybe I should make this week all about belly dancing!

Nice class and music! Is there any cd or mp3 album with this kind of song/instrument from the first song? Thanks!

Excellent for body awareness! Thanks for posting!

This class is about 20min long.... great full body workout! Belly dancing is a lot harder than it looks and I have a fairly strong core! Great teaching, Gillian!
