    Is there any sort of sitting movements or exercises for belly-dancing I can use in my wheelchair?

    I'm 13 and was diagnosed with Muscular Dystrophy many many years ago, I've recently started therapy to become stronger and maybe one day walk again, since I've been in my chair for 6 years. I've come along far and can stand for a short amount of time, make steps and move around. Which I think is all I need for belly-dancing! I've always loved to move and wiggle to my favorite music so I'd love to take this up. I wonder though if there's sitting exercises as well for it? Since I can't stand super long as a time, but I still want to use the movements to strengthen myself and dance away standing!

    You might find this Hub helpful:

    You'll see there is a DVD on wheelchair bellydancing available from Amazon.

    There are several chest, shoulder and arm movements in belly dancing - shoulder shimmies, chest circles, snake arms, chest lifts and drops. 

    Have fun!
