Belly dancing brings joy to New Jersey seniors

STORY: Some seniors showed up in sequins, wearing headbands adorned with flowers and moved their bodies left and right. The class is hosted by nonprofit organization Senior Source.

"Today, it was magnificent," belly dancing instructor Shlomit Oren said. "I love it that a lot of them wore costumes, they wore flowers on their heads, they came really dressed up, they really played the game to come and show up, and that's so fun. It was beautiful to see them smiling and (ululating) doing their noises, so beautiful."

Oren said her students get a great workout, in addition to other health benefits with belly dancing.

Students Maggy Petrosian and Marian Sepede agreed.

"It's beautiful, it's sexy, it's exercise, it's discipline, a lot of work," Petrosian said.

"It's a great workout and it's healthy because you're moving, you're moving your whole body from top to bottom and I loved it," Sepede said.
