Cardio Shimmy is part of the fitness video series Bellydance Fitness for Weight Loss. Instructor Rania uses techniques from the bodacious and historic traditions of Beledi to come up with these workout routines. Beginning with a warm up, this half-hour workout introduces the basic moves of shimmies and arm movements. Then, Rania instructs aerobic combinations including Lebanese and Upper Egyptian dance styles, followed by a cool down. Other videos in the series include Hip Drop Hip Hop, Bellydance Boogie, and Pure Sweat. This series is appropriate for all fitness levels, but those new to the style may want to check out Bellydance Fitness for Beginners.
