Persian love story told by belly dance

July 3, 2012
LookAtVietnam – A romantic story from “One Thousand and One Nights” told by the body language of belly dancing has made debut at Hanoi’s Au Co Theatre.
Five years since belly dancing was imported into Vietnam, belly dancing has been only performed at small stages, with single performances. This is the first time a belly dance show, entitled “Love Story of Aladdin,” was performed on the big stage of Hanoi, from June 29.
The show is contributed by 50 dancers from the LifeArt dancing troupe, one of the first and the leading belly dance centers in Vietnam.
“We hope to bring belly dancing to the audience to help them further understand this art,” said dancer and choreographer Ngoc Han.
