Believe it or not, some distant cultures find ladies with a little "spare tire" around the midsection sexy as hell. And those people really dig it when the ladies know how to shake and jiggle that fat to music. Finger-cymbal music, preferably. Thanks to the folks over at the Bellydance Superstars, this tantalizing ritual will be available for our local citizens to ogle right here in Orange County-no need to head to Dubai! Belly-dancing is penetrating the American culture, allowing Middle Eastern traditions into our highly sexualized dance scene. So rather than sticking to the traditional basic steps of circular motions isolated in one part of the body, belly dancers are beginning to expand their routines to include hip-hop and salsa movements, creating cultural fusion right before your eyes. Witness the invasion yourself!
