Discover Oriental Dancing Egypt

Typical Egyptian art form, belly dancing, also called oriental dancing, could well have existed since the Pharaohs. Right or wrong, the dancers have often been assimilated to prostitutes and are nowadays still negatively perceived by society. They are found in night-clubs and cabarets as well as in various tourist hotels and restaurants. Thanks to their omnipresence in Egyptian films, some of them have actually reached a sort of "Hollywood" notoriety.
