For thousands of years women from the cradle of civilization have maintained their beauty and explored their sensuality with the ancient practice of belly dance. This series - designed by Kim Pechet, a belly dance instructor and fitness professional - brings the secrets of this exotic practice to women all over the world.
Each episode begins with a relaxing warm-up in calming, lush surroundings that increase flexibility and prepare you for the more vigorous movements to come.
In the teaching section, each episode leads you through four to six belly dance movements. The repeated motions are designed to tone hips, thighs, glutes and abdominals while perfecting the sultry fluidity of the belly dance movements.
In the performance section, dancers in stunning costumes and dramatic settings combine the movements just taught into an energetic and stimulating low-impact aerobic choreography designed to burn calories and help you explore your sensual side.
The episode ends as the dancers take inspiration from the movements taught throughout the entire series in a mesmerizing display of freestyle belly dance.
