Bellydancing dates as far back as 6000 years ago. Traditionally, it was performed only amongst woman, accompanied by varying rhythms, as a celebration of birth, fertility, marriage and femininity. Today, woman all over the world have discovered its free and natural movements and mesmerising music and you too will be able to enjoy the hip swaying motions of this popular dance form. Zumba is a Latin-inspired dance fitness program created by dancer and choreographer Alberto "Beto" Perez in Colombia during the 1990’s. It involves dance and aerobic elements and unlike a typical dance class where counts are used, Zumba involves following the music with repetitive movements. Zumba's choreography incorporates Hip-hop, Samba, Salsa, Merengue, Mambo, Martial arts, and some Bollywood dance moves. In Swahili Nia means “with purpose” and that is how Nia teaches people to move. It is a path to condition, heal and express yourself though movement and sensation. This dance and exercise form has been described as fusion fitness – a dynamic blend of dance, martial arts and the healing arts. It creatively integrates the mindfulness of the martial arts and meditative techniques, the grace and fluidity of the dance techniques, and the awareness and alignment of integrative body therapies. Balancing technical precision with free-form expression, Nia brings the body, mind, emotions and spirit to optimum health though music, movement and self-expression.
Fitness fact: Men from the Navy would train by seeing who could drink ten bottles of water in the least amount of time. This is said to have trained the men to breathe accordingly if their ship ever sinks or they get thrown overboard.
