Welcome to Shimmy Core - cardio belly dance fitness. Joli created and designed Shimmy Core to combine intense cardio exercise with the exquisite art of belly dance. By participating in this fun dance fitness class you will learn authentic belly dance technique while dancing through a fast paced routine, thus elevating your heart rate and strengthening your core muscles. It is the fastest hour you will ever spend burning calories! This is not your typical belly dance class. We dance hard and fast! In addition to the physical health benefits of this dance fitness class, you will also gain self-confidence, coordination, and an elevated sense of self.
