Morocco Belley Dance


The basic techniques and steps used in Moroccan belly dancing involve circular movements that are isolated to some specific body part. For instance, a circular motion of the hips by drawing them parallel to a base is popularly recognized as a hip circle. Similarly, movements of the rib-cage are known as chest circles.

In Moroccan belly dance, while accents like drops and hip-lifts are beautifully used to draw attention towards such hip movements as hip circles and shimmies, arm and shoulder movements accent the belly and chest undulations. Belly dances in Morocco usually involve use of striking props like canes, swords, and baskets. Common dance dresses include chiffon and silk veils and dramatic wings in some special belly dances.
