Belly Dancing originated in the middle east, which some records say that it was started in Egypt more than 2,00 years ago and belly dancing is now widely popular around the world. With each country having their own styes. Belly Dancing is also a popular activity in here Cairo and and you can have a belly dancing show included if you book a Nile River Dinner Cruise.

Middle Eastern Belly Dancing shows usually last for 20 to 30 minutes with just one performer and after the performance, they offer guest the chance to belly dance too. Don't expect local Egyptian or Arabian women (unless they are Christians) to be the belly dancers as this is still a conservative country, the belly dancers doing the shows are usually come from Christian Lebanese or Christin Egyptian women and even some are from Slavic Countries like Russia, Ukraine, Lithuania

Belly dancers

Belly dancers is very popular show and watching it can be a fun. It realy depends of the skills of the dancer itself. Today it is very common to watch the dancers from Russia or Ukraine. I have watched one lady from Russia and one from Egypt. The first one was much, much better.
Anyhow, I suggest you to spare one night for the show...you can goto the nightclub at home:)
