Battle of the Bellies

As Bollywood became more and more famous, recently I’ve been noticing that for some reason, some people think that belly dancing is Indian. People are confusing Arabic, belly dancing elements with Indian. I think it’s because Bollywood films and movies are out there in the public and the Middle-Eastern folks aren’t saying anything and defending a part of their culture. I’ve seen Indian dances and just because the belly shows does not automatically make it belly dancing. Indian dancing is more family appropriate, joyful, fun…basically, it’s rated G. On the other hand, belly dancing is a different kind of fun; it’s sensual, exotic, and it’s rated R.
