Why BeliRaq?

BeliRaq is a fitness program and is inspired by the art of belly dance, an art originally created for women by women. The tradition continues, as this workout is a gathering place in which women can enjoy exercising with other ladies. Whether you’re wearing a coin belt, exercising with your friends or kicking butt at a BeliRaq boot camp this will help enhance the fitness experience while bringing out the attitude of belly dance and a smile to your face!

Are you at a beginner, intermediate or more of an advance level? No problem! BeliRaq welcomes all levels! Belly dance celebrates the beauty of all women and so does BeliRaq. With many levels of layering, each member can choose how complex or how deep of a workout she wants.  This means that beginners will find a satisfying workout along side avid gym goers who prefer a stronger intensity.

BeliRaq strives to be more than another gym program. It is designed to enhance a woman’s healthy lifestyle, no matter what age or fitness level, to build your confidence in how your body moves and to be surrounded in an environment where women respect one another. This fitness focused dance program begins with a gradual warm-up of the body. This helps you feel more fluid with the movements and helps lubricate the joints prior to exercise, helping to reduce the chance of injury. Next, you will move into the dance fitness choreography! 8-count dance moves with feet, hips and arms are involved because it is time to get to BeliRaqing!

Isolation is key! Learning to control your body in a very specific manner will give you confidence with yourself and key in on specific muscles in your legs, abs, shoulders, back and arms. The dance fitness choreography is design to isolate specific muscle groups to give you a quality and targeted workout. You will create muscle tone and burn unwanted calories, because this is more than just dancing. With the sound of the coins, the laughter of having fun, and the vivacious and sassy moves happening one after another, you will be so wrapped up in it that you won’t realize until after class is over that you have just received an intense and valuable workout!

Come to a class where BeliRaq is offered and feel good about yourself, not just because you are getting a workout, but because you are joining a thousand year tradition of women who understand that sometimes the best support and community you can have is that of fellow women.
