SHAKE and shimmy your way to good health and fitness this year with belly dancing.

Veils of Arabia is holding a free class this weekend to encourage new members to try out a fun form of exercise that anyone can enjoy.

Instructor Melanie Achilles said it was great general exercise that was not restricted by fitness level.

It also helps with a variety of health issues such as arthritis and cramping.

"Belly Dancing is excellent for mental health, physical health and a lot of women's issues," she said.

The free lessons will be in Gladstone at the QCWA on Saturday at 4.30pm and also at Benaraby Progress Hall at 10am. For more information phone 4975 0815.
