Egyptian Dance

This is the teacher of a belly dancing studio for children in Egypt. The teacher gives a performance before her students and the audience. Egypt is home to over 74 million people.

This Middle Eastern country in northeast Africa controls the Suez Canal, the shortest sea link between the Indian Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea. The country is defined by desert and the Nile, the longest river on Earth. Egypt is also home to the Pyramids of Giza.

Belly dancing is a traditional form of dancing in the middle eastern region. Even though it is called belly dancing and is a great core workout, it works most other parts of the body including the arms, legs, hips and feet. Belly dancing costumes are often quite beautiful, with bead work, sequins and intricate designs. Belly dancing is gaining popularity as a form of dance exercise in North America.
