Georgia (Mar 3, 2006) — Belly dancers‚ moving methodically across the floor‚ gyrated their waists to exotic music while tapping hand bells as dozens of onlookers watched during the “Love that Belly!” program in the Student Center Feb. 23.

The Counseling‚ Advising and Program Services Center and the Center for Health Promotion and Wellness sponsored the program‚ which featured the Dancers of the Harem‚ as part of National Eating Disorders Awareness Week to highlight the importance of loving one’s body.

During the program‚ one lucky participant won a belly dance workout video while sample costumes were passed around. The closing act was inclusive with the whole group learning several basic belly dance moves.
