The Dance of Fertility or Raqs Sharqi is also called Bellydance, Oriental Dance or Middle Eastern Dance.


Bellydance is a 17,000 year old sacred art form to be respected and eloquently performed.   This dance comes from the pre-Islamic tradition.  It's true that is has had many changes over the centuries and often misrepresented.

It is now widely accepted by many dance scholars as having originated as a fertility or Goddess worshipping dance in North Africa as well as Mesopotamia as it was called so many centuries ago. 


I'm a firm advocate of an active childbirth and have used bellydance, yoga, pilates and active birthing positions throughout my whole pregnancy and in the labour ward on both my own pregnancies to bring about a faster, drug-free childbirth and female empowerment as it works with rather than against a woman's bone and muscle structure.  

Bellydance is the best known exercise for women; by women.
