Belly Dancing is Fast Catching Up Among China's Beer-belly Men

Men in China have found a novel way to get rid of that paunch cause by drinking too much beer - belly dancing.

The trend is especially a rage among young and middle-aged men, especially white-collar workers and students in Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou and Chengdu.

And while the sensuous dance classes had more female enrolees than men when the practice was first introduced a few years ago, the possibility of weight loss and release from work pressure saw men willing to give it a try.

Zhang Sheng, 38, a department chief of a local firm in Beijing, swears by the method when it comes to losing that beer belly.

'Too many business banquets and not enough physical exercise left me with a beer belly. Then I was introduced to belly dancing. To my surprise, it helped me lose fat and reduce tension from work,' China Daily quoted him, as saying.

Zhong Hui, a teacher of belly dancing in Beijing, said that more and more men were also preferring the dance to pumping iron in the gym, because the latter was too 'dull and dry' for them.

'A man I trained lost 20 kilos in three months. White-collar men like the dance more than exercise with dumbbells and push-ups because the latter is dull and dry,' Zhong said.
