|About Belly Style:
Belly dance is a Western term for a traditional Egyptian dance form.The term "belly dance" is a creation of Orientalism, first used in English in 1899, and translating in French to "danse du ventre."Native to North Africa, Asia and the Middle East, belly dancing is based on one of the oldest social dances in world history. Support for this theory stems from similarities between poses from the modern dance form and those depicted in ancient Egyptian art.
