It never occurred to me before that you could belly dance in a wheel chair, this picture I recently came across shows otherwise! I love the elegance of her lines, the colour of her costume, her stage presence, just gorgeous!
I don’t know who she is (if you know please tell me!) and it got me thinking about the subject of bellydance and disability. So I did a bit of research. I had already heard and blogged about using bellydance as a means to recover from illnesses, but what about if you are unable to stand or are confined to a wheelchair? One belly dance teacher in North and South Carolina claims she specialises in bellydancing in a wheelchair.
Then I came across a YouTube video for “Chair Aerobics”
So, while not common, it is entirely possible. I will be on the look out for more information, as this is fascinating and inspiring!
