Here are my 4 “Favorite Things” about Mom and daughter Belly Dancing No matter what the ages are/

1. Bonding: They’re only young once!  

Every year I hear the voices of Mommies whisper “I’m just not sure how much longer she’ll want to dance with me!”  The opportunity to bond with your daughter while she is a child comes but once in her lifetime.  Share the fun of Belly Dance with her while you still have the chance! 

2. Set an example, BE a positive role model!  

What better way to teach your little one the importance of health, fitness and an overall active lifestyle than to do it yourself… with her!  Belly Dance offers many health and fitness benefits for kids and adults alike.  Why not talk the talk and walk the walk? Experience a healthy lifestyle together in an environment that is positive, friendly and fun….

3. It takes a village to raise a child!  

Before and after class, during breaks, and everywhere in between the constant exchange of tips, tricks, and “how to’s” between mommies is ever present.  How wonderful it is to see the bonding extend to that of mother to mother, it becomes a support group unlike any other!    

4. Open her eyes!

Belly Dance originates from the Orient and is danced in many Middle Eastern countries today.  Often times, this ancient dance form is traditionally passed down from generation to generation by mothers, grandmothers, aunts and sisters to younger girls at family events and special occasions.  As foreigners representing Middle Eastern dance, mothers and daughters experience educational and cultural enrichment as they learn to Belly Dance!

 Our reason was to spend quality time together and do something that was just for us. We then realised how much we enjoyed dancing together in the show’s groups and mommy daughter dances. Not only is it quality time at the studio but also the practicing at home for shows as well.

Candice All that mom said above. I can add that the feeling of being on stage side by side together is something special. Dancing gives us time together where we don’t have to stress about the world, we can just have fun together.
