belling dancing for exercise

just wondering if anyone has tried this? a friend of mine took a class. she is on the heavy side...and just loved it. She said she has lost weight since the class in her tummy/hip areas..I can tell. I am ordering a DVD and want to try at home. I am not a dancer so feel shy to do it in public but willing to try in my own home. Any one have any ideas on the subject? I will let you know how the routine is and if I see any change. I run 3 nights and thought this may add some spice to my workouts.

The coworker that I share my office with bought me a kit for Christmas. We signed up for peertrainer together and he thought I could work out and have fun at the same time. I think I'll go home and try it tonight. I'm very curious to see if it works!!!

It sounds like something that will add fun to your routine! It seems like it would focus on core strength and that's good! Makes me want to try it!

I tried a couple of belly dancing dvds but they weren't nearly instructional enough and I was lost within 5 minutes. I've been looking for an actual class to go to to learn the basics but there aren't any that make sense for me location-wise (which is very surprising since I'm in NYC). I really wish I could learn!
