Neck safety is really important for dancers - especially with all of the hair flips and head circles we want to do in bellydance. 

In this program, you'll learn ways of working with the neck in dance, as well as exercises that can help strengthen your neck. 

If you have neck issues, proceed gently - if you are experiencing pain, don't do the exercises, consult with a doctor about it. Neck pain can have many causes and you want to be sure you are playing it safe! My approach to neck work is very gentle, but each person has a different definition of "gentle"...and the neck can be especially listen to your own body as you explore.
