Belly dancing can build your confidence and self-esteem by correcting, strengthening, and stimulating the many qualities which make you the best person you may be.
The personality of a person refers to their birth traits. As an example, you hear statements like she had been born happy and free-spirited.
Regardless of your inherent traits building confidence and self-esteem is regarded as a part of your character. We build our character traits by studying and changing our behaviors. A common phrase which is often heard is…”She or he’s a trustworthy and honest person.
Regardless of our unchangeable personality (because this is what we are born with), we could improve our character by studying and changing our behaviors. Learning to belly dance helps build our confidence and self-worth no matter our personality type.
This can be adjusted by correct and factual knowledge. Knowing that the understanding of the dance is right is important not to make mistakes or create misunderstandings of communication.
Practicing is critical in order that we perform the movements as soon as possible for correctness and in the case of ethnic or folkloric dancing it ought to be historically accurate as much as possible to not insult the culture being represented.
The teacher plays a critical role in analyzing and correcting movements to reinforce the dance steps and movements are precise and well executed. This is additional training that strengthens knowledge.
The most frightening experience for a student is the first time public operation. However, since she was prepared, the applause and the remarks from the crowd rewards her with confidence and self-esteem.
It’s been my experience as a Middle Eastern dance instructor that no matter if you are an extrovert or an introvert it doesn’t mean that you’re confident. An extrovert can be a show off and conceal the fact that she’s not confident. An introvert may be quiet but have a whole lot of confidence.
In the classroom each student is enjoying herself because this dancing is a lot of fun. Also comforting is to determine how many other girls are socially interacting and enjoying others with similar interests. Many life-long friendships are developed during classes.
Belly dancing is an intimate experience of mental, physical, and spiritual awareness unlike any other dance style since it is a dance that displays the inner being.
