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 $35, you get a six-week belly-dancing course from Maya Zahira at Maya's Oasis.
Stomachs swivel and bodies twirl in Maya Zahira's belly-dancing classes, where women of all sizes exude inner beauty while performing cultural dances from around the world. Often cited to have healing powers, belly dancing encourages hip spinners to flex muscles and boost their own body image while making friends and fighting the tyranny of long shirts. Students embark on their dancing odyssey in the Beginning Belly Dance Technique class, learning to isolate hips, rib cages, and arms while mastering the use of finger cymbals and veils. Subsequent sessions build upon the folk dance's foundation, adding in choreography and prop boa constrictors as skills progress.
