At the weekly Middle Eastern Dance Sessions With Nailah
, Nancy Schuemann teaches ladies how to shake their hips, move their rib cages, and seductively work veils into the mix. Originally, it was a dance by women for
women, says Schuemann (aka Nailah), who dismisses a prevailing myth about the traditional dance. Belly dancers are not
strippers. I dont believe in performing in seedy bars. Were more covered up than people on the street.
