Scientists take a look at the feel-good benefits of belly dance

worldbym:

It’s only one itty bitty survey study - certainly not “solid scientific evidence” but it certainly correlates with my personal experiences!

My favorite performance I’ve ever done. A reflection on my life spent being taught to hate my body for being too big and imperfect, and having to change those feelings over the past five months of being pregnant and my body serving a different purpose. Performed to Pretty Hurts by Beyonce. I am so grateful to have a platform to explore these feelings, to get up in front of people and dance and cry and have them cry with me.
