Gentle Belly Dance Workout
with Benita Dale
Jasmina Rae is a Senior and has been belly dancing for over 15 years. This ancient, healing dance was done by women in the temples of Egypt to honor the Goddesses, and throughout generations, women have passed down this ancient art form to other women. Belly dance is all about you re‑discovering and re-connecting to your Goddess, Divine Self. She can attest to the health benefits of belly dance on the aging body. Her class is suitable for Seniors, new dancers, and anyone who wants to Move like a Goddess. You will learn gentle belly dance movements that will help you open a portal for self-expression, strengthen your core, correct posture, improve flexibility and balance, and so much more. Come dance with Jasmina Rae and have fun moving to traditional and contemporary music. Before the pandemic, Jasmina Rae performed at various venues with Troupe Malkia, a choreography group under the umbrella of Sacred Hips in Motion, and “Shimmy Pop,” an urban fusion group under the tutelage of Ebony Qualls.
