Why bellydance? | If you had told me I'd be on stage bellydancing a few years ago, I probably would have laughed at you. Before coming to Saffron, I'd never taken a dance class in my life, but I've found I really love this dance and now can't imagine my life without it. Bellydance has taught me a lot about myself; it's been a physical, emotional, and mental journey and one of the most rewarding things I've ever done. Learning that the most well-executed and effortless-looking movements necessitate real strength, control, and hours of practice has been a humbling and rewarding experience. I know there will always be something new to learn or with which to challenge myself. Most of all, it's gone a long way in teaching me how to practice better self kindness and forgiveness.
