Belly dance is perfect for sculpting buns & thighs since so many moves are driven by the glute, thigh, and hip muscles.
If you are familiar with bellydance, these exercise sessions will help you improve or polish your technique by encouraging a consistent focus on incorporating glute contraction in your hipwork. Glute work added to hip isolations and combined moves helps increase your hips' range of motion and make accents sharp and expressive.
