Egypt, with a history of over 7,000 years, is one of the four known ancient civilizations. Music and dance are integral parts of the Egyptian culture and of profound cultural heritage. Egyptian folkloric dance has a vast variety of styles, each style reflects their distinctive way of life within their geographical regions. Movements of the dance are dancers’ interpretation of the melodies; its rhythm is unique and inviting. The dance springs from the soul and unites its audience, a beautiful art in the making by their union.
Belly dance (also called “Oriental Dance”) is originated from Egyptian folkloric dance. Belly dance was introduced in Hollywood movies at the beginning of the 20th century, featuring the lively and exotic flavor of foreign culture, where belly dance provided a wealth of visual enjoyment. Since then, it is perceived as Cabaret entertainment in the western world.
