Various of belly dancer Amie Sultan choosing dance costume2. Various of Amie applying make-up before performance3. SOUNDBITE (Arabic) Amie Sultan, Belly Dancer: "I have studied interior design and I was practising ballet but I have decided to go for belly dancing because I know that society had misconceptions about this genre of dancing, mostly because of the way it is shown in films."4. Wide of Sultan coming on stage for performance at hotel5. Various of Sultan dancing6. SOUNDBITE (Arabic) Amie Sultan, Belly Dancer: "Although belly dancing is considered an art originating here in Egypt, we do not teach belly dancing in Egypt. Despite this, foreign people come to Egypt to learn belly dancing from Egyptian stars then travel abroad to teach it. That is because of the stereotyping of belly dancing (here)."7.

SOUNDBITE (Arabic) Ahmed Atef, Director and Critic:"Belly dancing has existed for a long time - not as some people might claim from the (19)20's. When we see old pictures we find many drawings of belly dance performances."11. Various of Sultan performing12. SOUNDBITE (Arabic) Ahmed Atef, Director and Critic:"I cannot say that the look has changed for the worse or that people look down at the belly dancers nowadays. The proof, from my point of view, is that classy people and those who maintain good intellectual levels hire belly dancers for their weddings. In addition, belly dancers also participate in weddings in very poor areas, where people have a conservative and harsh view of women in general and might consider belly dancing unethical. The belly dancer wears outfits more like lingerie than a dance costume, (she) makes strange moves which might be considered dancing but not professional dancing or even good dancing. Again, that means that society accepts this kind of art, even in rural parts."ASSOCIATED PRESS - AP CLIENTS ONLYCairo, Egypt - 18 May 201713. Sultan finishing her performanceLEADIN:A former interior designer in Egypt is hoping to spark a new interest in the art of belly dancing.STORYLINE:Amie Sultan is picking out a costume for her next performance.Belly dancing has a long tradition in Egypt.
