Welcome to Brenda's Belly Dancing: home of Troupe Sabba Zimora, performers and students of the Arabic dance style Westerners refer to as belly dance (also known as raqs sharki, danse orientale, Middle Eastern dance.) Sabba Zimora is a combination of Arabic and Hebrew meaning "eastern wind song of praise," appropriate for a group who studies Middle Eastern movement, raises each other's spirits and promotes healthy living and a positive attitude toward one's self.
What is Belly Dancing?
Belly dance is an expressive dance which emphasizes complex movements of the torso. Originally a Middle Eastern folk dance, it has evolved to take many different forms depending on the country and region, both in costume and dance style. New styles have evolved in the West as its popularity has spread globally. (Wikipedia)
