Power Belly Weight Belts: Weight belts are a element of the Power Belly format but not mandatory. We want to demonstrate different strokes for different folks. You can rent them for $5.

Power Belly The Class History

The summer of 2003 the first Power Belly Course was offered for 4 weeks before Delilah went on her 40 Days and 40 Nights East Coast Tour. Dancers loved it with or without weight belts, but for those who used weight belts, the results were amazing! We saw waistlines manifest. Dancers lost weight, inches, and got incredibly strong. So, we are going to do it again. Now we are proud to announce that the Power Belly Class is one of our most popular classes we offer. Janette, who attends both Tuesday and Thursday class gets the award for ‘Most Enthusiastic’! She told me the other day that she has not missed one class since that summer in 2003!

When we opened VDP Studio in 2004 we added the element of live music by Erik Brown: percussion, bass, cumbus, samples and found sounds as accompaniment to our courses. The live element gives us an added dimension to the total feeling of involvement in the dance. This is also the goal of Power Belly–– to move from the gut! We strive to engage the dancer emotionally through the discovery of the power in her belly!
