I remember researching about the how Belly Dance has been translated into American culture, mixed with history, Orientalism, Sensationalism, and Hollywood Glamour. Then how American Belly Dance started influencing the dancers in the Middle East. It was a long research paper and I love how this video summarizes major concepts in a short TWO Minutes!

Happy Dancing!
