Folklore: Khaleeji

Khaleeji it’s a dance from the Gulf and not practiced in Egypt, but you can find a lot of television channels 24 hours with life Khaleeji ( lucky me) , the outfit the dancers uses its called thobe al-na`ish with a lot of embroideries and can be made of silk, looks more like a big dress with long sleeves.

The Khaleegi moves are small , elegant and charming with hair tossing and playing with the thobe, So every time I see someone trying to perform it with no grace I just collapse, really .

Do not forget that as for all dance styles the dancer should feel the rhythm.

Saudi rhythm - medium speed 4/4 rhythm with heavy accents (Dums)
