Do I have to have any prior experience to join the class?
Belly dancing is based on natural body movements. Of course, as anything new it is not by any means "easy". Isolating movements throughout the body is very important to learn, and once you get more advanced you learn to layer the moves. But, don't think you cannot learn because you have never danced before. Let this be your chance to bring out the dancing goddess in you.
Where does Belly Dance come from?
