I just do not think that's what the OP wants from this thread considering the prices of this experiment. I have always found that belly dancers in Turkey were very agitated and did not dance too much. I have a brother who is a professional belly dancer and she is whimsical, very authentic and works with veils, tears and so on. There is a particular club she goes to in Istanbul where she says the dance is excellent, nothing of the money on their bras! I'll ask him the name and I'll let you know.
It may be more of a tourist attraction than a cultural outing, but a belly dance performance at 1001 Night Sultana should be considered primarily as entertainment. What can you expect? An evening e with long tables filled with Turkish, a living selection of snacks salty s, a Varia been cheeses, bottles of wine and a continuous program of belly dance, of tea Being and music. The show, which includes the YouTube Didem Phenomenon, gives an idea of life in the Ottoman palace.
Thank you for your thoughts. I remember you writing a blog post in response to the one I wrote in which you said I did not know how to dance the belly that really hurt me at the time, but That encouraged me to explore a different path and create performance ways, ultimately shaping my business and current livelihoods. Even though I still do not agree with you that I'm not a dream dancer, I'm always grateful to be working full-time now as a performance artist, so ... thanks!
Women often danced with other women, in private spaces, so that this dance was for the other. When they danced at parties at home with present men, the dynamic changed. When women were dancing for single women, there was a different type of erism, maybe more powerful, a lot more fun, or maybe it was like that. Was, child and adolescent, distrust of men's intentions. At weddings, the dance was festive and charming, something a professional dancer would do, and something that everyone would continue to do.
"We have a radical Islamic government in power and every minute they could ban the dance or make it so miserable that tourists stop coming," Luna said. A more serious concern for some dancers is their safety. Violence against women has exploded more widely since its inception. Luna has heard stories of gang rapes and assaults. "You can leave in the streets the lack of police," she says.
