It’s this time of the month again and to welcome a spring that has been long coming, I give you Hind Rostom, Egypt’s answer to Rita Haywarth even if her wikipedia entry describes her as the Marilyn Monroe of Egypt. For me she is more like or actually tries to emulate Rita Haywarth. Anyhow, she could belly dance as well as jive or whichever western dance of the day. In French, I like to describe her as plantureuse, an affectionate term for generous curves. If you have seen La Grande Bouffe, you would remember Andrea Ferreol, the ultimate femme plantureuse whose generous behind helped Michel Piccoli (or was it Ugo Tognazzi?) flatten the pizza he was making. But back to Hind, I can’t say I adore her but I do like the way she moves and I love her belly dancers ensemble, most of whom are not particularly attractive but together they form a charming group even if there is something rather incongruous about an ensemble of belly dancers. Unlike ballerinas, you don’t really expect them to dance in sync.

    I just love the expression on the clergyman’s face ~ obviously, he’s thinking, “this is no place for me”. Lol!

    This reminds me where I was recently exchanging PMs on another site with a young lady who is from the Middle East. She is a graduate student in Texas and occasionally does belly dancing. But she does it exclusively in front of ladies, NEVER in front of men. She feels it is not suitable entertainment for men as it corrupts their minds and souls. I have come across several ladies from the Middle East who share her sentiment. Yet, I’ve also posted on a professional belly dance website where the dancers all deny that the art should be exclusviely for ladies.

    I am wondering if you would share your views on this – is belly dancing for ladies only or should men be allowed to view it with or without ladies accompaniment?

    Thanks for sharing your views.

    of course it is not for ladies alone. it is an art form like any other and whoever enjoys should be able to watch it 🙂
