Oriental dance has roots from the Middle East, North Africa, Turkey and India. Oriental dance is a sort of dance where you sway your hip, roll your torso, and articulated isolations employed in a range of dynamic and emotional expressions. We will focus mostly on movements of individual parts of the body with a less focus on the footsteps. Arms and hands move freely.
