(17 Feb 2017) LEAD-IN Hundreds of belly dancers have been shaking their hips in the Israeli Red Sea resort of Eilat.With guests from France and Russia, they're here for the 12th International Belly Dancing Festival.STORY-LINESharon Mesguich definitely knows how to work a stage.Dressed in flowing red chiffon and swinging her sequins seductively, she's one of hundreds of belly dancers gathered in the Israeli Red Sea resort of Eilat.They've gathered for four days of wiggling and shimmying as part of the 12th International Belly Dancing Festival.With guests from France and Russia, the festival prides itself on growing every year since it started in 2005.Yael Moav, one of the organizers of the event, says the idea came about when she joined forces with her colleague Orit Maftsir. Both belly dancers, they were looking for a way to spend time with like-minded artists.It now encompasses dance and music from all over the world:"I'm really happy to say that as you see we have Arabic music, we have a Dabke (traditional Arab dance popular among Palestinians) dance group that everyone loves them and they are very important here. We have the band the are Arabs from Akko (northern Israel) and you can see in the evening, people dancing hand by hand Debka, Jewish and Arabs and Koreans and French people. It doesn't matter if you are Jewish or Christian, (or) you are Muslim. We are all into this art", she says.The event is a combination of dance classes, workshops and performances. Held in the Club Hotel in Eilat's main strip, the festival is held in February each year before the weather gets too warm for the dancers to give it their all.People can also buy belly dancing clothes from the event and get their makeup done so they're ready for the stage.For Sharon Mesguich belly dancing is a way of life:"It's inside you, you can't describe from the passion from what you want to do and the way that you are. The more you work, the more you will be famous. If you stay home and don't do it you will not never be famous", she says.Not everyone here comes to dance. Some are simply fans of the art so come to watch the performances. Nama Mats is one such visitor:"It's a very beautiful and feminine dance. It connects us to inside of us. Every woman and it brings out the great energy of tenderness and beautiful movements. I like it a lot", she says.The festival is also trying to alter perceptions of belly dancing, which is generally considered a female occupation.Tzach Orni loves to belly dance after first discovering how much fun it was at a wedding. Now he wishes more men would join him in the pursuit:"People tell me, male (men) tell me 'I love to dance but I can't allow myself. I can't allow myself to do like that. I wish I could'. They're stuck in their maleness I don't know how to say it. But, there is some male belly dancer. A few of them here, and some of the teachers are male. But, not enough", he says.The festival runs through to 18 February 2017.You can license this story through AP Archive: http://www.aparchive.com/metadata/you...
