~ Dance ~

The oriental dance, native of the Middle East, is essentially danced by women and expresses at once all the femininity, the vitality and the sensuality.

It is recognized as one of the most ancient dances in the world.

There are several styles of oriental dance, depending on the country of origin, but this art is always characterized by the flexibility and the sensuality of its movements. This dance composes with lively and jerky rhythms as well as with slow and fluid ones.

The Egyptian cinema made famous big dancers as Tahia Carioca, Samia Gamal, and Naima Akef and we were able to discover the oriental dance in Europe and in America in cabarets in the middle of 1930s and 1940s.


Since then, but especially since the 1990s, this dance is known in all around the world; it is practised by a very wide public and is addressed to anyone.


Beyond the cultural enrichment which brings the oriental dance, as you listen to the rhythm and to the oriental melody, it contributes to the real physical and psychological good to be, because it brings grace, flexibility of the body, harmony and precision of the movements. It also learns to separate all the parts of the body, as well as to control manage the space.

It allows to escape and to exert while enjoying yourself on lively rhythms and is appreciated by the women of any ages and any origins.
