Welcome to the

Belly Dance Life

Sculpt, tone, and awaken your soul!

Have you been feeling disconnected, repressed, self-conscious, like life is shallow, maybe you feel uncomfortable in your own skin? Are you holding back, stuck, stagnant, and/ or dissatisfied? Have you been looking for something that fun and also wakes your body's soul connection up?

If so, turn your light on

with belly dance.

Activate your creative life force energy, and move it through the body with belly dance movement and music.

Are you tired of feeling sluggish and feel like you have no energy at the end of the day? I know how that is! The grind of work, family, and household responsibilities can be so weighing on the soul. I remember the days when I craved more energy to do what I wanted at the end of the day. After serving everyone else, I felt like it needed to be my turn. My turn to have fun and grow. I wanted to feel more empowered, more confident; I wanted to connect into source and feel the freedom of expression. I wanted to dive into a discipline that could allow me to have more fun and, at the same time, develop me into the person that I knew that I was becoming. Do you resonate?

I sometimes felt lonely because I didn't have people like me that I could talk to. People that wanted to self-improve and be free to be them. I wanted to dive deeper into my own spirituality and get lost in something that made me feel like there was something more. Do you ever feel like that?

This is why I created Belly Dance Life. Because when I found belly dance, it changed my world. Not only was it fun, improved my muscle tone and stamina, but it is also the place where I found who I am. It helped me claim my power, step into my confidence and find the freedom I had been searching for.

The ancient wisdom of this art form dates back to folklore dance. When I tapped into the movement that comes from so long ago, there was a part of me that tapped into my own spirituality. It was a truly transformative experience. When I dance, I can completely let go of all of the outside world, and I get in touch with the divine source. It feels liberating; it empowers my feminine core and makes me feel unstoppable. It's a feeling like nothing I have ever experienced in my life.

Since I have been studying this work for over a decade, I am ready to embrace you and your journey. I would love to facilitate your personal growth and belly dance training experience.

Do you want to explore who you are more deeply? Do you want to tap into your beautiful sensuality and truly own your own femininity?

"She's soft, beautiful, and spiritual by nature, and she can frick'n hold your attention with dance!!

My only job that night was to walk around and close the guests' mouths one by one."

Theresa King-Thompson - Trauma recovery coach

One of the hardest parts of 2020 was the lack of being able to be with a community face to face. I know it was incredibly hard for me, and I decided that I want to make sure that we truly connect more. Community is such a huge component of my life and I want that for you. This is why I am not just doing one-off classes but creating a community around Belly Dance Life. It's not just classes to learn a technique, it's about masterminding and helping each other. It's about getting to know other women like you and being a part of a true belly dance community. The artform was not meant to be experienced alone. This is why it is so important to create community around your learning.

So, you're probably wondering what you

Read about Heather's experience...

Courage. Confidence. Desires re-ignited.

I recognized that the movement helped to reinforce the content, although it felt more vulnerable and less natural for me than a discussion about the content and “aha’s”. This definitely improved as the program progressed!  We are now planning on starting a family in the next couple of months and I credit this program with giving me the courage to finally tackle this instinct and desire with my partner!!"

It's not just dance, it's a new way of doing life!

"Happy to say within months of coaching with Lileith, I secured a great new job, moved 800 miles back to my hometown, got my marriage on track, my husband employed, and the children survived all of this. I could not have done this on my own. Lileith is a Godsend. It is much too difficult to look at the future when you have an immediate life-changing decision in front of you. Lileith has a unique gift of empathy and the ability to see possibilities that we cannot see on our own. I am grateful for my life coach Lileith!"

-Deborah Ann Miller

"Lileith is a mesmerizing dancer with captivating grace and enchanting beauty. Her fluidity is stunning and she beams throughout her performance. Her dedication to her craft does not go unnoticed, her moves are so skillful and very unique, truly a breathtaking performer. I will attend an event just to see her perform."

What is belly dance?

It is a dance originating from the middle eastern folkloric dances, adapted for stage shows in the late 20th century, and performed at weddings, celebrations, festivals, hotels, and nightclubs in many countries all around the world.  

What kind of belly dance do I teach inside of Belly Dance Life?

I perform and teach primarily Egyptian styles of belly dance. I also incorporate personal-style-expression lessons where you will learn how to bring your own truth and movement to the dance art form.

Why should I try belly dancing?

You should try it out if you are called to it.  There is a beautiful quote by Shemarin Ibrahim that sums it up nicely: “You have heard the call of the wild, something behind your usual horizons is calling you.  Belly dance doesn't call every woman, so if it knocks on your door, I believe it is trying to give you a gift uniquely suitable to you.”

Where can I buy my own belly dance scarf and other accessories/costuming? 

COMING SOON I will have a shop for you to purchase. In the meantime, when you become a member, within our community, I will share where I buy all of my favorite costumes and accessories.

Will I be learning anything else beside belly dancing?

Belly dance is my vehicle through which I’ve experienced accessing and freely expressing my true nature, and it has truly awakened my instincts, and me in so many ways.  Through this experience, I aim to bring you along with a similar journey to your own awakening by not only teaching the dance but applying it to your journey in accessing and freely expressing your very truest nature.

Do you perform for parties special occasions?

Yes, please reach out to me at lilieth@lileithpolite.com
