Okay, my ode to Flirty Friday is about the ancient, beautiful, and sensual art of Belly Dance!
Belly Dance is a Western-coined name for a traditional Middle Eastern dance, especially raqs sharqi. Belly Dancing is as beautiful as it is mysterious; the origins are a bit uncertain, but it may be one of the oldest forms of dance. From the idea of entertainment, to ritual to maternity dance for expectant mothers, Belly Dance may be many things.

What I love the most about it, is it is very inclusive. Young or old, slender or full bodied, Belly Dance welcomes everyone, including men.
Some of the world's best belly dancers have some belly...but no belly required. It welcomes everyone!
It can be challenging to learn but boy is it worth it! Yes, if you guessed -I am learning myself and my hubby appreciates it ;)
If you want to give your significant other a special treat, learning to Belly Dance is highly recommended. In addition to its natural seduction, it gives body confidence and flexibility!
Yet another reason Belly Dance is great, it can be very seductive, and flirtatious! Learning new movements can be very sexy! and what about putting on a little show just for them?

Listen, it could happen. You may be called to put your dance skills to use to help save a poor semi shirtless hunk from death by boredom on a deserted island. There are so many reasons to learn Belly Dance!
So, what are yours?
