My belly dances all on its own. I kind of wish it wouldn't.
My belly, love handles and back fat all dance on their own. My thighs have been known to get jiggy with it if the moment's right.
We certainly do.
I used to play Doumbek (arab drum) and did a lot of bellydance gigs. Mostly before digital cameras so not many photos.
There is this one. The dance troupe was really, really good. Yes, those are real swords on which she's balancing. Yes, the costumes are more modest than "cabaret style" bellydance, for this show. Gig was at a big mansion and was a record release party for RHCP. Not pictured is Oud player John Bilezikjian , one of the most talented and hard working musicians I've ever known or had the grace to perform with - a big man with a big heart, bigger chops and immense repertoire of Armenian, Arab, Turkish, Greek, (insert Balkan or European country here) and rock and jazz music. RIP John B.
It's not just for polka anymore.
I don't know, maybe John had a secret polka fetish?
Fun facts: I was just reading the book Devil in the White City, about a serial killer operating around the Chicago World's Fair of 1893. Apparently the fair was the first time belly dancing was done in this country, and it was a huge (and controversial) sensation. They shipped in whole villages from Egypt and elsewhere as "exhibits" for fairgoers to visit and look at. The Tunisians (I believe it was) got the month and day they needed to arrive correct but the wrong year, so they wound up hanging around Chicago for a year while the grounds were still being built. The woman who was the lead belly dancing star stayed in America after the fair was over. A few years later she was jumping out of cakes for bachelor parties.
As long as I have Shakira to YouTube I am not wanting for belly dancing.
Her hips don't lie, yo.
My first time in Egypt, we were determined to find belly dancers, and then were surprised when none of them were thin
They sure could dance though
I think that is called "Booty Dancin"
2 of my hot arse lady hausmates talked me into taking a last minute belly dance class with them a few months back ... it was a hoot! I'll spare you the photos, but we looked good
But more than that really She is the real deal.
I agree……one of the only times I seen her though was on SNL and she put on one hell of a show
It was the best part of the show
That's a creepy book!
