The last time I forgot, a white woman came out in Arabic – because that’s what it is, when someone who is not Arab wears genie pants and a bra, eye makeup and Arabic jewelry. a piece of jewelery that claims to be “Arab” because it is metallic and shiny and has scribbles – and has begun to dance the belly. She was not a terrible belly dancer. But she was incredibly thin and did not remind me of Tahia Karioca or Hind Rostom or my favorite Raqs Sharqi dancer, Fifi Abdo. Abdo used to dance in the bra and skirt expected, but later danced especially in dresses that were somewhat shapeless and more traditional – a sort of housewear-streetwear disaffected dress that people in Egypt rock every day.

An important part of it was the group interaction, meeting with others for a shared experience. Perhaps the fashion of belly dancing as it manifested in the 2000s has diminished, but the need for emotional expression by movement is a lasting human trait. I am confident that the new generations will discover its benefits and the cycle will continue.
