With its sensuous twists and undulating curves, belly dancing can express a wide variety of emotions, from "Look at my belly!" to "See what I just did with my belly?" Learn to shimmy what you're thinking with today's Groupon: for $25, you get five belly-dancing classes at Bahiti Belly Dance in Penticton (a $50 value).
Bahiti Belly Dance's expert instructors shepherd students through classes that aim to whittle pounds via cardio-focused dancing, and to bolster body image, personal expression, and self-confidence. In Bahiti Beginner Adult classes, dance pros teach basic techniques that isolate core muscles and then layer moves into routines with pops, shimmies, and belly rolls wavy enough to convince mirrors they need to get their glass checked for ripples. Students ages 13–18 can enroll in a Bahiti Beginner Teens class that uses dance as a medium to teach commitment and teamwork skills. In all sessions, belly-dancing music fills the studio as rug cutters don costumes and master new moves. Warm-ups and stretches round out classes that fuse exercise with dance as effectively as a treadmill placed under a limbo stick.
