1. This is Egyptian bellydancer Hanan. She has the most beautiful, relaxed, fluid technique. This is a real golden oldie converted from a VHS cassette and, back then every bellydancer worth her salt seemed to own one of these tapes. Back in the 'old days', watching videos of Egyptian dancers was how we learnt. The dance tapes were often sold through a local ME bakery, butcher or deli - well that's where I bought all my VHS tapes LOL. Depending on the copy you had, the tape may - or may not - have featured Hanan, Nelly Fouad, Mona al Said and Nagwa Fouad.

  2. This is Egyptian bellydancer Soheir Zaki performing in a hotel nightclub in Cairo. The clip was filmed at a double wedding of the daughter and cousin of Madame Abla the costume maker. It was a huge affair featuring dancing by Soheir Zaki along with Nagwa Fouad, Fifi Abdu and Aida Nur and many singers. The music was composed by Ahmed Fouad Hassan. (Thank you to Amoura Latif for the information about the wedding.)

  3. This is the first part of a performance by Egyptian bellydance legend Nagwa Fouad during one of a series of concerts filmed, probably in Abu Dhabi the capital of the United Arab Emirates, during the 70s. Possibly the concerts were part of the celebrations related to the formation of the UAE in 1971 but nobody really seems to know exactly. Any confirmation would be greatly appreciated.
