The origin of bellydance is an actively debated subject among dance enthusiasts.
Regardless, historically, dance has always been an important part of our culture; and belly dance is a big part of this.
Everything has a history!
The dance is usually done in small spaces, and mostly involved stationary, earthy moves focused around the hips. Hollywood glamourised it and made a significant contribution to the bellydance costume. Inspired by the European burlesque outfits, Hollywood designers created fringed, beaded, sparkling bras and belts for example.
Bellydance has now become a part of international pop culture.
Its rich history contributes to its allure. It can provide a way to express, serve as a workout, be a part of spiritual or meditative practice, offer opportunities to make friends and connect with others, and of course, bring great joy.
It is truly a dance for every person.
