New movement in belly dance
Amira Abdi created her own unique style of oriental dance - called Belly dance Aesthetics which she sucsessfully teaches to her students during 12 years. This style is based on deep analyse of different styles of oriental dance (Turkish, Lebanese, Egyptian etc.), classical ballet and silk road dances and careful selection of the most aestetic (beautifully looking) movements, steps and poses. Beautiful hands and arms movents, turns and rotations used in silk road dances were added to Amira's style of oriental dance to make belly dancing look refined and graceful. Belly dance aestetics works not only with rhythm but also with melody pattern, special flexible body and hand moves, backbends and body tilts are used to emphasis lyrical mood of nei, violin/kamanche. Different kinds of turns are used to show sacred and spiritual feeling of nei, duduk and different kinds of middle eastern wind instrument.
Belly dance Aestetics rejects all vulgar, heavy movements, brutal body shaking such as shaaby belly dance even if they are authentic because not everything which exists in folk dances should by shown on puplic.
Costumes in Belly Dance Aestetics should look rich, sparkling and refined. No broken jeans, poor village dresses and lingerie looking bra.
The main idea of belly dance aestetics is to discover natural beauty and power of every woman, awakening a Goddess, making her looking like a Queen not only on stage but in real life
