“…Nowadays it is becoming a popular form of exercise (Maira, 2008;Dox, 2006), and its physical and psychological effects are widely reviewed (Paul, 2006;Sookoo, 2009). The advantages of belly dance are reported in previous studies, both as a leisure activity (Kraus, 2010;Moe, 2012;Abrão and Pedrão, 2005) and as a treatment option (Baptista et al, 2012).

De acordo com o autor Casanova & Zanella a dança do ventre no processo de seu desenvolvimento "perdeu sua função sagrada original e paulatinamente tornou-se parte do legado cultural árabe e uma forma de expressão artística, significados que predominaram em sua apropriação pelo Ocidente" 6 .…”

“…Várias delas abordaram mudanças em relação à sensação de bem-estar, mais disposição, calma, alegria, animação durante o dia-a-dia. Outros estudos com dança do ventre também colocam a questão da autodescoberta, pois "(...) a dança do ventre contribuiu para "melhorar a comunicação, a descoberta do corpo (...)" 5 . Uma entrevistada relatou que a dança serviu para que ela tomasse um tempo para ela mesma no momento da prática, considerando este como uma pausa para cuidar de si mesma, para seu auto-cuidado.…”
