The Importance of Ballet

Of all the dance forms I've ever studied, I must say none made me feel fitter, stronger and more flexible than ballet. The only reason I gave it up is because it's very hard on the joints. Leaps are a big part of ballet and landing takes it's tole over the years.

But I still recommend all belly dancers take at least basic ballet classes. It will improve your posture, your lines, your core strength and your flexibility.
