Perhaps we should make this a sticky thread so anytime someone asks about the different styles we just point them to here???

May I add....

Eva Cernik as Turkish Classic Oryental?
I'd hate for anyone to think that Didem was the posterchild for Turkish dancing!

Time for my medicine :).
Egyptian Dina


Lebanese Dalal


Turkish Reyhan

much better performance of Reyhan's here Reyhan - Turkish Bellydance

American Oriental or Cabaret Dance (our own Salome)


Greek Tsifteteli Olympia


I don't feel I know ATS/ITS and Tribal fusion to judge the best examples so I leave it to others :)

Agreed...but...by FAR, not the only or best example of Turkish Oryental.
Thank you Liz, I was looking for that exact clip of Didem, and thank you Gia for offering an example of Turkish BD other than Didem - this mirrors exactly a conversation I was having the other day (ie, although Didem is the name that comes to mind, I can't believe that she's the best example!)

Is it just me, or do some Russian BDancers have a hint of ballet in their performances?

Tribal: Zoe Jakes is amazing! I prefer Rachel Brice's style though.

Didem- I think she's very talented & cute, however, there's something I find unappealing about her... something about her performance that bores me- maybe it's the look on her face??? I can't put my finger on it...

I never noticed that, I will have to look closer.

Speaking of Russian belly dancers...I love russian belly dancers. I tend to find allot of them I enjoy watching.

I like this Russian Dancers style allot: Azza
YouTube - redrose007888's Channel
OMG Rania! I'm watching the video and thinking, something about her is familiar... then I realized, I move just like her! I mean, I obviously can't dance as good as her, but there is something about the way she moves that is just like the way I move! Weird! Thank goodness I like her dancing! I like her costume too. I didn't see her do any of the ballet-ish moves I see sometimes.

What I've been doing is testing myself- I will watch a video of someone's performance without reading any info. Whenever I come across a Russian BDancer, I can usually call it 'cause of a hint of ballet.

Example:
YouTube - IRENA Bellydance

I love this dance and the music! Everytime I watch it I'm entranced- I think it's so pretty! I think it's just an into...?

Anaisis Bellydance - Salome Dance
Never heard of her! Shes good, pretty costumes to. thanks for posting

Im no where near a pro myself, but i have a good taste in what belly dancers i choose to become a fan of. Azza the russian dancer I posted, above is super talented, has good taste in her costumes and on a compleaty unrelated note, is very pretty. I noticed she gets allot of postings and took the time PM and thank me for the kind comments. I tend to judge a dancer by the way she treats her fans. Not saying they all have to reply, but you now what I mean ;) its nice to see someone take extra time appriciate their viewers

Here is another video of Anaisis. I love her dancing (not the music), does anyone know what style she is?

YouTube - Anaisis Bellydance - Magic carpet
Is that not tribal music and she is wearing "cabaret " costuming? Strange. What country is she from?

Ah now the second ...that I like. I am NOT confused with this one!

There is not a Russian style of belly dance...it's a case of Russians belly dancing with a Russian "accent"
