Oriental dance or belly dance in the most popular tradition and as it is often called today, it is a famous and ancient form of entertainment, but few know that the benefits it brings, if you learn the movements well, are innumerable, this makes it a discipline that takes several hours of study.
One reason to do this discipline, is undoubtedly the general psychophysical benefit that this dance generates.is in many women and girls that approach this discipline.
Today, this dance is certainly a fun and playful occasion to reappropriate one’s own femininity, also because it develops potentials of bodily movement rarely experienced before.
It frees and eases tensions, gives a good mood thanks to the cheerful, relaxing and peaceful rhythm of oriental music.
The benefits are similar to those produced by postural gymnastics which relax the sacral loin, joints, shoulders and cervical tract, toning them. Belly and hips are more trained and toned, enhanced by the Arab culture for their generative and sensual power.
The rhythmic rotation of the hips, the oscillation of the abdomen and the torsion of the trunk also have other beneficial effects: they relax the pelvis and its internal organs, improving circulation and strengthening the musculature of the whole back, the hips become thinner, the legs reinforce and the way to move acquires security. Sweetness, anger, joy or melancholy are thus expressed with movements more clearly than in words. It is an excellent exercise both to obtain a good neuro-muscular balance and to start to become aware of our body as well as our femininity.
The belly dance, an ancient millennial dance, is a hymn to life and a dispenser of energy and abundance. Now as then, every dancer puts the intensity of a relationship, of an emotion, the energy of conception, the sacredness of procreation, bringing us back to the most creative subtle energies of life, and to its transcendence.
Elisabetta approaches oriental dance at the age of 17, surprised at a very young age by the way of dancing seen by her relatives in Tunisia, who feels to be completely built on the female body. She began his education in a field characterized by the attention to folklore, history, music and the different styles of Oriental Dance. After a break in which she dedicates herself to the ancient song of the Mediterranean tradition in the Ensemble Noeannè directed by Fabio Soragna, she returns to dance studying in advanced courses, and she is directed to a professional course aimed at teaching to first level students (2010), obtaining the second level certificate the following year. She is particularly interested on the roots of oriental dance, discovering a natural feeling with Baladi, she studies folklore and Maghreb dances, following several times Elhadi Cheriffa, artistic director of the Theater of Algiers and first dancer of the Ballet of Algiers. She immersed herself in the study of the saidi, of the typical khaliji of the Persian Gulf, documenting in an internship with Wael Mansour on folk dances such as the fellahi. She followed for an internship year after year, Mohamed El Hosseny, who was a soloist of the famous Reda Troupe by Mahmoud Reda (a myth for Egyptian culture), on which she learns the simsemmya, typical of the Suez Canal. In January 2013 she finds new life in the study at Metiss’art with Alessandra Centonze, thanks to which she enriches her teaching activity with a new awareness of the benefit of this dance and its expressive power. She is interested in the more classic Raks Sharqi and also studies the Iraqi gipsy dances (Kawilija) with the Iraqi Assala Ibrahim. She also studied occasionally with the Tunisian teacher Narjess Montasser, and for the Shaabi style also with the Alexandrian Jaylane Abd El.
She carries on the study of Arabian sagatas and rhythms and participates as a dancer at various events, including in 2011 “The Seasons of Life” at the Teatro Regio in Turin, the Mi-to music festival in September, Pinc, the Milan Migrants Review. She participates as a dancer in the TV show on La7 in “Do not Tell the Bride”. Happy of the extraordinary opportunity to create choreographies on original compositions, she gave birth, with Marzia Palmieri in 2013, the Maat duo.
She loves to bring oriental dance to the Milanese clubs that host musical events to spread her knowledge; she worked for the realization of oriental dance performances at the Morocco Pavilion, on the occasion of Expo 2015. She collaborated with the musician Nour Eddine Fatty as a guest dancer in the show “Nour Eddine Solo” (September 2015). In June 2016 she participated in the show “Journey along the Silk Road” with the Theatrical Bellydance Company BellyQueen of New York, directed by Kaeshi Chai. Elisabetta has been teaching continuously since 2011, she is a patient teacher and yearning for the technical and expressive growth of all her students, respectful of the learning time needed by every woman because the extraordinary benefit of this discipline comes through the “secret” of fun.
