Did you know that belly dance improves self-esteem, body awareness, flexibility, co-ordination, posture, stress reduction, confidence, balance, rhythm and creativity? Elaine De Rooy started Belly Laughs Navel Academy, a professional contemporary belly dance teaching and performance business in 2012. She brings laughter and a bit of silliness, to an otherwise serious dance genre, thru her musical selections. Three of the belly dance troupe “The Jingle Belles” from the Belly Laughs Navel Academy gave a sassy presentation and shared some of the Belly Dance history. Elaine invited our members to learn some of the dance moves. Several brave caregivers learned basic moves and simple combos. Even Annie Quad at 96 tied on a coin belt and did a few combos!
