Self-esteem is recognizing your personal accomplishments. For me this dance seemed natural and with practice it seemed easy to me. However, to many women it is a difficult dance to learn. Others find it challenging. However, when you have accomplished or mastered the movements and rhythms you know that you have accomplished the rewards of perseverance and you can take pride in your accomplishments.
There are many misconceptions about this dance by those who do not understand.or lack knowledge. They are missing a great personal adventure of wonderful experiences.

The movements used in this individual dance style requires focused attention in order to execute successfully. This brings attention to the body and how it works. The physical movements help the individual to lose weight or firm their curves.

Negative self-image is removed with positive proof of figure changing benefits and she feels better about her female body. Self-confidence emerges which in turn changes mental attitudes, emotional problems, and spiritual renewal..
