Healthy Travel for Belly Dancers
Belly dancers love to travel! We go out of town to workshops, dance festivals, and even exciting dance touristdestinations such as Egypt and Turkey. Here's how to stay "in the pink" (healthy) while on the road.
- Part 1, Beginning Preparations.
Check health insurance coverage, prepare for common things that
can go wrong.
- Part 2, Beating Jet Lag.
Feel your best when you arrive at your destination.
- Part 3, Avoiding Colds.
Airports, airplanes, and belly dance events are all incubators
for catching a cold.
- Part 4, Maintaining a
Healthy Gut. Nobody wants diarrhea to interfere with sight-seeing
- Part 5, Foot, Muscle,
& Joint Health. Avoid injury, and learn how to deal with
it if it happens anyway.
