Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 25, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Belly dancers popularity increasing Wedneitfny, Auguil 25, 1971 THE IETHBBIDGE HEMID 27 By IIAHRY DUNTMY BEIRUT, Lebanon cause you arc virtuous shall j there he no more cakes and i j; NOT JUST.SHAKING i With Western appetites thus vvhclled, helly dancers, invaria- bly named Little Egypt, began turning up at world's fairs inj Paris and Chicago at the slarl j of the century. But these dancers and the' ones at work in New York clubs as "Oriental dancers" have in common with Ameri- can burlesque than with serious belly dancing in the Middle says one Cairo connois- seur. Miss Gamal, an Alexandrine 01 CJreck-Ilalian parentage, is more emphatic. The dance, she said, "is defi- nitely not a matter of shaking or exposing the flesh." (1It is essentially an exprcs- j sion of femininity. It must sug- gest sex, but it must do so deli- c.-ilely, hinting ralher than as- serling, and it must always be in good taste." Miss Gamal, who is 32 and lias long black hair and dark, smouldering eyes, appeared at Lebanon's Baalbek festival in 1968 on the same bill as Herbert Von Karajan and the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra. KEEPS CLOTHES ON j Unlike the striptease, tho I belly dance never promises i more than it can deliver. The dancer never takes off her clothes, and the music is more incidental. Uusually there is a seven- piece hand with a hand-held labla setting the pace and the reedy nai or flute alternating fast or slow tempos to blend ivilh the dancer's movements. There are two basic styles ol belly dancing. In one. the dan- cer highlights muscular move- ment white remaining station- ary. This style stems from the who women whose function at wed- dings was to stimulate the groom and instruct the bride in lovemaking. 'NASSER'S BIB' The need for "awalem" has disappeared now that Arab soci- ety has become more educated about sex. but belly dancers j still are a popular feature at weddings and birthday celebra- I linns j The second style of dancing, practised mostly in villages, stresses slow movements across an area. The women are fully clothed and tie a scarf around their hips to accentuate them while men beat on the floor with cenes. Since the last century, the dance has been most closely as- sociated with Egypt where there are at least 500 belly danceis. some of whom work a circuit that stretches from Rabat to Karachi. Embarrassed by the dnnre's notoriety, Ihe Egyptian govern- ment first banned it, then in decreed the girls must he covered irom head to toe, prompting the use of transpar- ent material in areas not cov- ered by Hie costume. This soon became known as the Nasser bib, but with politi- cal changes in Egypt even the bib is disappearing.
