What is Belly Dancing?
A culturally rich dance form that origionated in Egypt African which has travelled and is popular in many Middle Eastern North African and Medetaranean countries. Eventually it travelled to the west and has evolved into popular styles we know today. Belly dance styles from different countries have small similarities but big differences.
It is important to remember that belly dance incorporates the whole body and has dance steps and turns. No we don't just stand around wiggling our hips and bellies although we do use these body parts along with the rest of the body.
*Belly dance is not Zumba Bollywood Indian Goddess or yoga dance. These styles can be fused with belly dance to make a belly dance fantasy or theatrical fusion piece. Belly dance is its own amazing style all on its own.
