Wednesday Inspiration: Samia Gamal

Just a quick one today: a beautiful black and white clip of the queen, Samia Gamal.  To me, her movements here look much softer and slower than in some of her other clips and I really like this one.

Samia Gamal dances in a scene from the 1947 film ‘Habib Al Omr’ (Love of My Life حبيب العمر) which starred Farid al Atrash, Hassan Fayek, Lola Sedky and a very young Ismail Yassin who plays the kanoon player in the band.

I hope you enjoyed that!  I wish you all a happy week of dancing!!  And leave you with a reminder that my Tuesday and Thursday morning San Mateo belly dance classes start next week on 8/23!  Details on my Learn Belly Dancing page or contact me!  Not sure if belly dance is for you?  Check out my post on the many, many Benefits of Belly Dance.
