Am I too old to belly dance? - WW


Am I too old to belly dance? 

Belly dancing is an ancient art form thousands of years old, great exercise for women of all ages! It’s not only fun, I think it makes women feel sensual and feminine. I love the costume and accessories!

Seniors benefit from such regular, low-impact, aerobic exercise which keeps their cardiovascular system healthy and helps ward off osteoporosis.


The movements are slow and gentle. The perfect exercise for seniors and a unique form of dance that doesn’t require a partner. :)

Even the guys want to try it out! 



Age is a question of mind over matter. If you don’t mind, it doesn’t matter.

How old would you be if you didn't know how old you are?

I think I would be 22. :D

  2. I'm 30 (31 in less than a month lol) and I still think of myself as a very mature 11 year old!

    And age isn't what you are, age is just something other people use to define you!

  13. I don't think anyone is really too old to belly dance. I think it keeps you younger. :)

    Happy WW!

  14. I have seen a lot of Belly dancers in Egypt, Morocco and Turkey. A lot of restaurants or hotels have a show of Belly dancers. I like it very much. The exercise with the scarfs look as if they were waiting for a bull ! Olé !

  15. Sukhmandir Kaur,
    At this stage of my life, I find Time passing too fast.

    When I was in my teens, I couldn't wait to grow older. Why was I so silly!? boohoo.....

  16. Mummy,
    11 years old would be a little too young to be falling in love .... and if you were a student in Singapore, school would be too stressful! :P

  18. Liz,
    Learn belly dancing through DVD!?
    It's much more fun learning in a class with lots of giggling women. :D

  19. Mariuca,
    Seventeen!? Muda lah! Tapi manis yah.

    Why not 18? Under 18 still got restrictions you know? Above 21, you're free from parental control. lol....

    I cannot belly dance now lah only, need to be on crutches even if I want to stand up. *bang head*

    If we finally go on a trip together to Tokyo, we will dress up as Cosplay characters and go to Harajuku! lol

  21. Hi Lui,
    I tried learning ballroom dancing through watching DVD but it wasn't easy.

    I prefer learning in a classroom with other women. It is more fun. :)

  22. greenzen,
    Yes, one is never too old when it comes to learning. I hope to keep learning as long as I'm able.

  23. Anna,
    Seems to me ladies prefer to remain as 17, 18 years old. :)

    Many of my girlfriends are bitten by the Belly dancing bug too.

  25. Auntie E,
    "Hour glass body" - these are magic words to us women! :P

    Now..., I have to learn belly dancing. :D

    We don't have any TV program to teach us but such are courses are easily available near our workplace and homes.

  26. BK,
    Of course one also needs to know her own limits and not get hurt doing something inappropriate.

  27. Queen Bug,
    I agree. Belly dancing makes one younger and healthier.

  28. Gattina,
    I'm sure you have seen the best belly dances during your travels. I have watched it on TV shows and the ladies are so awesome!

    Dancing with the scarf just make the dancer look so sensual! Probably makes the guy come charging like a bull! Olé! haha....

  29. wenn,

    ReplyDelete
  30. Liza,

  31. That is a "sport" I haven't tried. Actually sounds like fun.

    ReplyDelete
  32. you're only 22 ECL! so you're not too old to belly dance ;)

    ReplyDelete
  33. It is a fantastic form of exercise and no one is ever too old for belly dancing. It makes you feel so energetic and refreshed as well.

    ReplyDelete
  34. You are not too old. I think you would have fun. I say go for it!

    ReplyDelete
  35. I feel like 19 still. If I weren't too shy I will try bellydancing too.

    ReplyDelete
  36. We never too old to learn something. Lazy me sometimes but not old, so let's go belly dance.

    I think I would be 29, mature yet under 30 :p

    ReplyDelete
  37. Age is just a number. So you can do anything as long as you r capable of doing. I am drawn to belly dancing before too. Try it on CD but its more fun with group exercise.

  38. Cats live in a different kind of time-line than all of you two-legged ladies. If I didn't know how old I was I would say that I was about one year old; recently just a kitten, but now old enough to be considered grown. I live with my real cat-mamma though -- this is unusual, as most kittens get reparated from their mothers -- and she still thinks of me as a kitten, grooms me, etc.
    Belly-dancing?? I think you should go for it. I don't belly-dance per se, but I do roll around on the floor and try to wrap myself in a scatter-rug. Is that a sort of belly-dancing for cats??
    Purrs,
    Sara Cat
