Can you lose belly fat by belly dancing?

As the term belly dance was introduced to the world back in the 1950s, fitness trainers often referred to belly dipping as a “belly dance” exercise. However, it is not entirely accurate to use this term because belly dancing exercises are not a cardio exercise; this does not mean that there isn’t fat burning involved, but the goal for a belly dancing exercise is to reduce muscle mass and improve fat oxidation.

How is belly dancing different?

You certainly start by dancing to different rhythms at first, but your body will adjust to the different rhythm and your belly (which is a gland) will burn more calories as you exercise as the belly becomes more active. Therefore, belly dancing exercises can help you to burn fat and build muscle while working with the metabolic demands of aerobic exercise.
