What is Dancing for Birth™?
Dancing For Birth™ is a fun and uplifting dance workout for prenatal and postpartum women. Weaving together African Dance, Belly Dance, Caribbean Dance, and Latin Dance, Dancing For Birth™ teaches women how to use world dance moves to facilitate more comfortable pregnancies, labors, and births while encouraging optimal fetal positioning. Postpartum women can wear their baby in a wrap or sling and use the same dance moves to stretch, strengthen, and tone their bodies after childbirth.
Birth can be like a marathon and Dancing for Birth™ prenatal/postpartum dance classes prepare you for the challenge. You’ll become stronger, more agile, more at ease with your body and both mentally and physically ready to embrace your unique birth experience. You’ll learn moves inspired by Belly dance, African dance, Latin dance and interpretive movement. It’s a feel-good workout that challenges, yet relaxes you.
