Karen Phillips teaches Middle Eastern dance (also called bellydance or belly dance) in Kingston, Ontario, Canada, currently through The Conservatory. She has been teaching since 1998 and has a simple philosophy: dance should be fun!

Bellydance is an ancient art form practised in the Middle East and across Northern Africa. The dancer becomes a physical expression of the music; the dance emphasizes graceful, exotic movements, coupled with muscular control. The dance is also an excellent whole-body exercise for people of any age at any level of fitness. Karen’s students have ranged from eight years old to well past sixty. Dancing is great for pregnant women too as it tones the specific muscles used in childbirth. Dance sessions can range from relaxing to vigorously aerobic, depending on the desires of the individual dancer.
