Belly dance is a type of dance whose main characteristic is the rhythmic movement of the hip and belly muscles.
It is an Oriental dance, also called “belly dance”, which consists of a series of vibrating movements, accentuations, undulations, pelvic movements and rotations that affect the body as a whole.
Combined with music and twisting movements, these movements were originally an integral part of the ritual of preparation for fertility and motherhood.
Oriental dance promotes socialization, self-esteem, sensuality, strength, endurance, flexibility, coordination, body awareness and balance.
Above all, it allows us to discover that it is possible to have fun dancing, relaxing and controlling your body at the same time. The physical and emotional benefits of oriental dance make it an authentic therapy for body and mind.

About Bellydance :
The correct name for this dance style is “Raks Sharki”, which means belly dance or belly dance.
For America, the name of oriental dance can mean Japanese dance, Chinese dance, Thai dance, etc. Therefore, in the United States, it was called “Belly Dance” and in Brazil, “Dança do ventre”.
This denomination is due to the movements that predominate in the belly and hip of the woman. Belly dance is the most feminine and sensual of all dances. The woman, through Arabic music, unites her movements, expression and seduction, transforming them on stage into emotions that she shares with her audience.
The origins of oriental dance :
The origins of belly dancing go back to very ancient times, about which there is little to no documentation. Many stories have been created to illustrate its beginnings. It is therefore necessary to research carefully and use common sense to determine if any of the information is false or true. Women in the Arab world dance among themselves and for themselves. They form a group, where one at a time, stand up and show their performances in front of their sisters and friends without the presence of men. They celebrate women’s strength and spirituality and convey beauty and freedom through their particular expression.
Oriental dance today:
Nowadays, in Egypt, belly dance performances are common during wedding ceremonies. Sometimes the bride and groom direct their hands to the dancer’s belly. This would be a reference to the relationship between dance and fertility cults.
Traditionally, the dancer is barefoot. However, since the rise of major belly dancing performances, particularly in Egypt and Lebanon, dancers have been wearing high-heeled shoes, which may be a way to demonstrate the social elevation of this practice by the people.
Many dancers still prefer to dance without their shoes to make direct contact with the energy of Mother Earth. Belly dancing is designed specifically for the female body. It focuses on the abdominal muscles and the movements of the hips and chest. Belly dance is practiced barefoot on the floor and is characterized by smooth, fluid, complex and sensual trunk movements, alternating with bumping and shaking movements.
Magic, mystery, beauty and sensuality. These are some of the ingredients that fascinate women and incite them to practice belly dancing, as an ancient art!
