The term "belly dance" is a translation of the French term "danse du ventre", which was applied to the dance in the Victorian era, and probably originally referred to the Ouled Nail dancers of Algeria, whose dance used more abdominal movements than the dances described today as "belly dance". The Art of Belly dancing is no easy task as every part of the body is involved in the dance; the most featured body part is usually the hips. Belly dancing is a great form of exercise and there is even exercise classes built around using the techniques.
