Emerson Hospital Offers Beginner Belly Dance this Fall


The Emerson Wellness Center for Mind and Body is offering a fun beginner Belly Dance class starting September 17.  The class is about embracing the ability to move with joy and beauty.  Belly dance celebrates all ages, shapes and sizes. In this beginner class, participants will shimmy their way to a sculpted body with basic movements that strengthen core muscles.  It is a fun way to exercise that doesn’t feel like work.

The Beginner Belly Dance class meets on Saturdays from 1:00 p.m. – 2:45 p.m.  The instructor is Lorraine Lafata, LICSW.  Participants will meet at the Emerson Wellness Center for Mind and Body, located at 310 Baker Avenue in Concord, near the new Residence Inn hotel. Free parking is available in the office park. The cost is $135 per person for a six-week session. Drop-in  rates are available.
