Bellydance has many varieties with many different types of costume. It is a wonderful form of exercise strengthening the core muscles and a very feminine artform in its own right. Bellydancers are true athletes as it takes strong concentration and muscle control to become a true bellydancer. Turkish Caberet style is the most physically challenging style. It has been likened to Jazz compared to the Ballet of the Egyptian style. In Turkish Bellydance the costumes are more gypsy like & wild. The modern Egyptian style of dress is more Evening dress like. Still sensual, though softer.
The music of bellydance varies according to region. Different languages & dialects as well as instruments. Bellydance Zills are wonderful finger cymbals that a Bellydancer can use to enhance the mystery and mood of her dance.
Veils are the ultimate way to create mystery in the dance.
