Belly dancing is an ancient art form that has become a popular form of exercise; it is low impact and can burn up to 400 calories per hour while working numerous muscle groups. Additionally, belly dancing routines can be tailored to fit the needs of individuals who have physical limitations or disabilities.

Stomach Muscles

Belly dancing targets the deepest layer of muscles in the stomach known as the transverse abdominis; the complex movements associated with this type of dance work to strengthen and tone these muscles. The oblique muscles, which are located in the sides of the abdomen, are stretched and toned during the hip circle movements done during belly dancing. Another part of the abdomen that is toned is the rectus abdominis, commonly called the six pack muscles and located in the lower front of the abdomen. The toning effect occurs during the vertical and horizontal undulating movements as well as during two specific dance moves known as the camel and the belly roll.
