Ahlan Wa Sahlan Festival Quandary in the BBC
The BBC featured belly dancers attending Raqia Hassan's festival in Egypt. The article very briefly compares the views on dance from native, religiously leaning Egyptians with those of the eager foreigners. Also, Diana Esposito, who is in Egypt on a fellowship to investigate the dance's decline in popular support, is mentioned. View "Enduring Allure of Egyptian Belly Dance."
