While belly dance is an excellent form of exercise, there is no magical workout that will shape you up in 90 minutes per week. Shahina offers discounts for multiple classes and recommends balancing your workout with other forms of dance, yoga and pilates. Shahina also conducts dance skills workshops which focus on specific areas of improvement.
