Egyptian Belly Dance



Modern Egyptian style Belly Dance (also known as Raks Sharki or Orientale), is very popular in the Belly Dance and Middle Eastern communities. With vocabulary that is strongly influenced by Western movement from ballet and jazz, this style is regarded as more elegant and lifted, with smaller, tighter movements. With Egyptian style performances, the dancer typically enters with a veil, and discards it early in the first song. Finger cymbals (aka zills or sagat), floorwork, and props such as swords or fan veils are very rarely used, and the dances are often choreographed or blocked. The costuming is regarded as more chic and elegant, typically incorporating more rhinestones than coins, and little to no fringe or tassels. You may see two-piece costumes with skirts that can be full or straight, or you may see a one-piece cocktail-style dress. This is the style of dance you would usually see in an Arab nightclub or restaurant, often with a live band.
