  • neither. it's just a dance. for women, by women.

    reading the history of belly dance, it was designed as a test more than anything. brides-to-be would dance it among themselves and the guy's mother as a test of how strong her pelvic muscles were for popping babies. the guys would never see the dance. they weren't supposed to. of course, that changed somewhere down the line.

  • Belly dance is just a dance. An art, a creativity, a culture with nearly 5000 years history.

    I don't believe in none of the statements above. It has nothing to do with empowerment nor objectifying of women.

    I assume you bringing this logic just because "Belly Dance" sounds pleasurable and involves body moves and costumes that show off the body and such factors. But this is not the reason to be super bad or super good.
    It's a dance with lots of beauty, talent, creativity and hard-work in it. I see nothing else inside it.

  • I think that's it's a dance. that's it. I don't think it's empowering unless it's how you attract mates like animals. but I think humans give more meaning to meaningless things like time.
