This belly dance video is actually kind of hard! The first move was so challenging that no matter how I tried I just could not do it! That made the whole thing kind of moot for me…since I couldn’t get the first move down, it threw the whole rest of the routine.

That being said, if you can manage to do the moves, you’ll get a good workout out of it! This is a much quicker routine than usual, and the moves go fast, so it will be a workout for your mind and your body. I didn’t sweat that much while doing it, but that’s because I couldn’t get a grasp on the moves. If you do, you might get your heart rate up a bit higher than I did.

It’s a pretty fun belly dance routine, though! Since it’s a little hard, it’s not my favorite, and it’s not really beginner friendly. But if you feel up to the challenge, this is the perfect, fun, quick dance routine!
