There are many health benefits awaiting those who practice Middle Eastern dance. This form of dance is a low-impact, weight-bearing form of exercise for all ages and levels of fitness. It won’t jolt or jar your body. The graceful hip drops, rolls, and pivots of this dance form utilize muscle groups in the abdomen, spine, and more – working with the body instead of against it.
