Smiling and frowning are largely universal, but other forms of body language such as hip shivers and abdomen undulations can be misinterpreted as requests for rain, looser pants, or an order of onion rings. Decode dubious gestures with today's Groupon: for $40, you get eight one-hour Shimmy Fitness or Middle Eastern belly-dance classes at Belly Dancers in Paradise (up to a $120 value), with six locations throughout Honolulu, Kapolei, Mililani, and Kailua. Led by professional dancer Malia Delapenia, the hip-shaking instructors at Belly Dancers in Paradise impart the art of sensual hip rotation to beginner- and intermediate-level dancers through Shimmy Fitness and Middle Eastern belly-dance classes. One-hour Shimmy Fitness classes infuse belly-dancing movements with a fitness routine, resulting in a workout that pumps heart rates to optimal calorie-burning and coin-scarf-vibrating levels. During the 60-minute Middle Eastern belly-dance classes, rump shakers begin with yoga-inspired stretches, and will then learn how to breathe into belly-dance moves, making them look effortless, organic, and especially alluring to shoulder-dwelling boas. While isolating body areas such as the stomach, hip ripplers generate an authentic routine of titillating dance combinations and rhythmic footsteps that will baffle awkward two-stepping siblings. At Belly Dancers in Paradise, cool, breathable clothing, hip scarves, and aerobic shoes are recommended, but children, beverages, food items, and shy tummies are prohibited.
