Belly Dancers From TV and Film

Welcome to the belly dancers from TV and Film blog post.

One of the first places I had seen a belly dancer was on TV as a child. It was in the James Bond 007 Hollywood movie from Russia with love. It was really my first inspiration of wanting to know more about the dance with its exotic moves and mystical sounding music. Later my mothers Turkish friend gave her a VHS tape with Turkish TV shows and music videos on it and this where I had seen a little dancing on a Turkish TV show. I'll add  more about that later. So I have spent years researching belly dancers from the movies and on TV and compiled my own list of videos both from home and away with descriptions of what is going on in the movie or TV show or music video that involves the belly dancers. So here is my list some videos are great others maybe not but it's all for fun so I hope you enjoy and please check back to see if I've added more videos and information. Any other information I find I will add otherwise just Enjoy 😊
