I have a belly, so this should be easy, right? Notsomuch!!!! I got a few bellydance DVDs 3 or 4 weeks ago, and have made Sun my bellydancing day. It is my off-day easy cardio. No impact for sure, but its not as easy at it looks. I can really feel it in my abs, and my arms to with all the arm movements. I can do the slow version, but my parts don't shake like the lady on the TV. I don't move like that. Its a totally different movement than "regular" cardio and totally different muscle strength than weigh lifting. Trying to retrain my body and mind to smooth things out and flow. I am enjoying it so far, but I'm sure I look the proverbial frog in a blender. I have found if I let my thoughts wander to, er, bed time activities it is easier. If I think too hard about it, it becomes dang near impossible. I think I will stick with this for a while. Normally, slower, non high activity workouts bore me, but I like this.
