About Booking Belly Dancers
Belly dance, or bellydancing, is an exotic Arabic dancing style which originated in the Middle East. In Palestine, this dance is called Raks Baladi, and is performed by male and female belly dancers during festive occasions such as wedding ceremonies, wedding receptions, and parties.
Belly Dancing as we know it in America, otherwise knows as Raqs Sharqi, is seen primarily as a woman's dance, celebrating the sensuality of being a mature woman. Many forms of dance in America have borrowed from bellydancing, such as jazz dancing, hip hop, and contemporary dance. Hire a belly dancer to bring fun and culture to your next event!
