The belly dance is a famous Arabic dance that took over the world. This expressive dance, which originated in Egypt, has become so popular that basically all countries in the world have some sort of a belly dance culture. The costumes, the movements, and the music are the basics of this complex dancing style, so if you have dedicated your life to this art, it is only natural that you’d want to include your best friend, your doggo, in it.
Everyone knows that to be considered a serious belly dancer, you need to invest your time in making nice, intricate costumes. The shinier, louder, and better made your costume is, the better impression you will leave with your fantastic dancing skills. So, if you can have an amazing belly dancing costume, why can’t your dog? Get a bit creative and make a fantastic costume for them so they can join you on stage and wow the audience with their skills and amazing looks! All you need for supplies are some fabric, needle and a thread, a sewing machine if you have one, some beads and bells, and of course, treats for your Doggatella Versace to reward them for being so creative and skilled in costume making!
Belly dancers are in great shape at all times. They need to be, as their particular style of dancing requires a lot of energy and a lot of flexibility. The movements of the torso are quite complex, and to achieve them with such elegance and ease, one must be very fit and have strong muscles. Therefore, it is only natural for belly dancers to work out regularly, so while you do, take your dog with you! They will surely love some physical activity during the day apart from their walks, so take them along and show them some exercises they can perform with you!
As a belly dancer, you are probably not opposed to performing for your friends, family, and even strangers, one of your performances in public. As much as you love it and find it exciting and exhilarating, your doggo probably feels the same as they have no sense of shame or anxiety over possible failure. Next time you want to show off your moves to your friends, do it in a duet with your lovely doggo! Teach them how to dance and move their body like a belly dancer does and let the world know just how talented and flexible they are. The only price to pay for this fun activity is a willingness to perform!
Find a dog-friendly belly dancing show and take your pup on a night in the town! Go see a performance together and catch some new moves and costume styles you can later apply to your own shows!
