There are belly dancers who are elegantly sexy and others who are brazenly so. And there are those who are cute and Kitty Fotsaty, who I have featured before and who is my choice for this month belongs to this camp. She is just adorable. Her smile seems genuine and her movement is gorgeous even if her shape is a little too lean for a belly dancer. She still manages to seduce, even more so in this clip from Bint al-Balad (the daughter of the country or the country girl depending on who is translating) with a fantasy New York skyline as a backdrop. I love how her dance starts en silhouette before she is fully lit and revealed to her elegant and entranced audience!
It’s official. Kitty Fotsaty is my new favourite belly dancer. I had never heard of Kitty until I started looking for my belly dancer for August. Still, she must have been a big star in her day. The film from which this clip is taken seems to be a lavish production and in other clips that I watched, she stars alongside Ismail Yassin who was the biggest Egyptian comedian of his time — just as big as Laurel & Hardy and just as hilarious. But to go back to Kitty, she has a beautiful body, thinner than the average belly dancer but very shapely; and she doesn’t have a silly expression as she dances. In fact, she is very pretty and very cute; and I just love her sinuous, supremely sexy movements. I am dedicating this video to all those civil servants who surf the net on taxpayers money in search of belly dance classes! Thank you Fuchsia for this amusing bit of news.
