Americans know it as "belly dancing." In the Middle East, the title is raqs al sharqi. For a quarter century, Habiba has been researching and teaching the ancient art of Middle Eastern and Oriental dance in Philadelphia, and at camps around the country. Here, we see her training the latest group of belly dancers, and learn about her trips to Egypt and Tunisia to refine her art.
