Georgia Burnett has been belly dancing since 2005. She now has her own studio, Bella Dance Studio in Spartanburg, where she offers a wide range of belly dancing classes.
Burnett spoke with us on the benefits, styles, and history of belly dancing. It is believed belly dancing began as a way to make childbirth easier, considering there were no hospitals and pain medications then. Mothers would teach their daughters the moves and ways of belly dancing, and then the daughters would do so for their daughters.
