Belly Dancing Healed Me

Can belly dancing heal? In 2006, Raqia Reich fell into a deep depression following the diagnosis of an illness and was pulled out by the inspiring dance. The mixture of femininity, strength, spirituality, and expression of the soul helped me love and empower myself again.”
By Brigid Morrissey

Raqia performed at Worldfest 2015  You can see her there this year on September 2, 5pm at
Fountain Stage located at the Belvedere.  

There has to be something to belly dancing if the human race has been practicing the art form for 5,000 years. Believed to be the oldest form of dance, belly dancing primarily consists of isolated movements in the torso and hips, rather than the limbs. As Raqia elegantly puts it, “Belly dance is a connection of body and soul, movement from the heart.” Additionally, she says, the dance helps clear the mind and allows one to let go of stress, creates feelings of empowerment, relaxation, creativity, and increases self esteem and happiness. The mental benefits aren’t the only reward. Physically, the dance increases muscle tone and flexibility, and the low impact of the movements are gentle on the back and joints. “The movements are natural to a woman’s body. Belly dance is for all women, all ages, and all body sizes.”

We focused on the outside of Tish and Stephen Geftos house last month — read it here.
But while we were there, our photographer paused to take a few inside shots of their art deco home remodel. “Together, we have a pretty good knack for ignoring bad decor and seeing the potential of a house,” Stephen says.
