I am taking a break from the Oxford Symposium to post my belly dancer of the month. It is this time again! And this month I bring you a very pretty one called Thuraya Salem who seems to be unknown. No Wikipedia entry, no postings on belly dancing sites. Nothing. So, I can’t tell you much about her except that she is gorgeous and moves rather well. I am not even sure which film the clip is from except that it must be one from the golden age of Egyptian cinema where each film had at least one belly dance scene, either in a cabaret as in this one or at a wedding or a party or in a cafe or anywhere really. Any excuse was good enough to feature a belly dancer. I like Thuraya and I am hoping that one of you watching this clip will be able to tell me something about her!
