Danza del ventre

La Danza del Ventre è un modo d'espressione metaforico e magico, che si nutre della simbologia femminile. Si basa su movimenti ondulatori, soprattutto del bacino, sinuosi lenti e brevi che sembrano fare davvero bene al corpo ed allo spirito. La danza del ventre migliora il benessere del corpo: aumenta la percezione e la consapevolezza del proprio corpo, potenzia l'espressione corporea e la sensualità, migliora la respirazione, la circolazione e il portamento, esprime giovinezza e vitalità, allevia i dolori mestruali e i dolori di schiena.
