Beautiful bellydancer with a veil. Belly dance is a type of Middle Eastern dance. Originally a "solo, improvised dance involving torso articulation,"[1] belly dance takes many different forms depending on the country and region, both in costume and dance style, and new styles have evolved in the West as its popularity has spread globally. | Photo: J.Victor | Link | Bellydance, Costume, Veil, Eyes, Dark Sepia,

Bellydance poem

Editors note: Bellydance.One will run poetry articles from time to time, when the editors feel that dancing viewers will benefit, emotionally, spiritually, or physically from the art. We hope you enjoy!

When I reached the age of fifty
my spirits were so low
my marriage was quite boring
I did not know which way to go.

I felt so fat and frumpy
I did not know how to dress
I lay all day and watched T.V.
I was an awful mess.

But then a friend said `this is wrong`
our lives we must enhance
she said we are going down the town
we are going to learn to dance.

So I started belly dancing
it was not very hard
and now I am beautiful and sexy
and my name's Sheharizade.
