Belly dancing originated in ancient Mesopotamia. It was a folk dance, accompanied bij drums and tambourines. Over the centuries it spread throughout the Middle East and North Africa and changed in to what we now know as belly dancing. In belly dancing, called 'raqs' in Arabic, one mostly dances with the shoulders, buttocks and hips. But all movements are supported by the entire body. That's why you need to be in good physical condition, a belly dancer sometimes dances 20 minutes on end. And the entire body is in motion. Belly dancing is Oriental and Orginal, so sign up for this course!
