About the Style
At NJADS we often run workshops such as Alixa Flexibility, Progressing Ballet Technique and Jumps and Turns to help dancers improve their technique, their strength and physical conditioning to prevent injury and encourage healthy development of their muscles. Workshops for new styles of dance have included Belly Dance, Modern, and more!

Belly Dance In Bellydance we build from the floor up. First we get the feet moving, then add hips & bodywork, then arms and hands; the last piece of the puzzle is usually expression. Belly Dance is a dance style from the Middle East however it has various names depending on where it is being used the term “Belly dance” is a more westernized title. Dancers will learn to use their hips, and shimmies, figure eights and more. This style is great for the body and overall health encouraging fitness, healthy digestion, back strength, stress relief and core health.
