There are several videos and online classes to teach this move. This move is also good for back muscles. Other area's of the body benefits from belly dating depending on the level you take it to. For belly rolls you start at the top of your abdomen and tighten the top muscle, then the muscle below that. After reaching the bottom of your stomach you start over again.

Costume and Jewelry

The fashion of clothing that belly dancer's wear is pretty much the same in any style. Through the years more has been added to the lure of the costume. The design is meant to catch the eyes of the audience by the way the material hugs the hips and breast but yet leaves the arms, legs and midsection exposed.

They use a thin material to make the costume bottom and with a bra the same material is used. Beads and coins to decorate. Chimes on the fingers of each hand and a wrap or shawl made from the same material completes the outfit. It can be made at home or purchasedo online. It's my opinion that it will be less expensive to make it at home.
