Train Your Brain #5
I've been taking American Tribal Style bellydance classes for almost two years now . . . and Iove it! It's beautiful, and it is great exercise too. Dance and martial arts have that in common. Don't believe me? I challenge you to Train Your Brain: Boost Your Dance & Martial Arts Brainpower. Pump up your knowledge about these expressive and physically demanding pursuits. This post features just ten of the titles available on the full list. Click here for the printable list complete with call numbers.
