The "Fifi Abdo" Hip Circle

In class last week I referred (again!) to the "Fifi Abdo" hip circle.  This is my label, but Fifi Abdo, a top dancer in Egypt starting in the 70s, does it very well and very often in videos I've seen of her dancing.  On this site, I have a page with information for new dancers.  One of the videos is the one I'm reposting here.  She's wearing a classic white robe and dancing with live musicians and finger cymbals.  This one of my favorite videos of her dancing. The hip circle is at 1:17 minutes.

Enjoy, enjoy, enjoy.  I never tire of watching this clip!
