 How did Belly Dance begin?


  Belly Dance is potentially mankind's oldest form of dance.
It's origins are thought to rise from the fertility rites of
ancient peoples who lived with in a Matrifocal culture
in the areas surrounding the Mediterranean.

Over time "Belly Dancing" evolved from a sacred ritual
 into celebrations, social gatherings and eventually
secular entertainment.
Around the world, the Dance still exists
in all of these forms today. In countries like Egypt,
Belly Dance can be seen in five star hotels with large
orchestras. "Raqs Sharki" (Dance of the East) is performed
hours on end with the dancer testing her endurance as she
swirls about in a variety of costume and musical orchestral
changes. It all depends on the talent of the dancer and their
patrons.
Belly Dance can also be found in raunchy nightclubs in Egypt
as well as elegant celebrations, weddings, festivals
and in the home where groups of women gather to socialize,
meet new friends, and at times to select potential future
brides for their relatives.
Belly Dance or "Raqs Sharki" is also known as
"Danse du Ventre" (Dance of the Stomach)
and "hoochie koochie" (mistakenly after
 the Kooch dancers of India).
