Belly dancing can build your confidence and self-esteem by correcting, strengthening, and stimulating the many qualities that 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. Another example often heard is that the person is an introvert or an extrovert.
Regardless of your inborn traits building confidence and self-esteem is regarded as a part of your personality. We build our personality traits by learning and changing our behaviors. A common phrase that’s often heard is…”She or he’s a trusted and honest person.
Regardless of our unchangeable personality (because this is what we’re born with), we can enhance our character by studying and changing our behaviours.
This can be corrected by factual and correct knowledge. Knowing that the understanding of the dance is correct is important to not make mistakes or create misunderstandings of communication.
Practicing is critical in order that we perform the movements as accurately as possible for correctness and in the case of ethnic or folkloric dancing it needs to be historically accurate as much as possible to not insult the culture being represented.
The teacher plays a critical role in analyzing and adjusting movements to reinforce that the dance steps and movements are precise and nicely executed. This is additional training that strengthens knowledge.
But, because she was ready, 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 regardless of whether you’re an extrovert or an introvert it doesn’t mean that you are confident. An introvert may be silent but have a great deal of confidence.
In the classroom every student is enjoying herself as this dance is a lot of fun. Also reassuring is to determine how many other women are socially interacting and enjoying others with similar interests. Many lifelong friendships are developed during courses. A bonding occurs making each woman feel strong and sure and able to overcome any negative thinking or influences.
Belly dancing is an intimate experience of mental, physical, and spiritual awareness unlike any other dance style because it is a dance that displays the inner being.
