Belly dance is primarily a torso-driven dance, with an emphasis on articulations of the hips. Unlike many Western danceforms, the focus of the dance is on isolations of the torso muscles, rather than on movements of the limbs through space. Although some of these isolations appear similar to the isolations used in jazz ballet, they are sometimes driven differently and have a different feeling or emphasis.

Moreover, it is difficult to separate secular and spiritual dance in Egypt. Folk dance and high arts are also closely linked. Dance forms can have a secular, sociocultural, political, spiritual and religious character, all at the same time. Dances in Egypt are performed to celebrate many things, such as work, combat, or life, as well as accommodating death in rituals, processions and ceremonies that accompany Egyptians throughout their lives.Folklore workshops

Samba is a dance to black/African people in Brazil who brought much of their music and dance culture into Latin America with them upon arrival into many Latin American countries. Samba music is very similar to and has been influenced by many Angolan music genres. It has also been influenced by many other Latin American music genres and dances. The Samba music rhythm has been danced in Brazil since its inception in the late 16th century. There is actually a set of dances, rather than a single dance, that define the Samba dancing scene in Brazil; however, no one dance can be claimed with certainty as the “original” Samba style.See Samba workshops

In terms of the focus of its technique, contemporary dance tends to combine the strong but controlled legwork of ballet with modern that stresses on torso. It also employs contract-release, floor work, fall and recovery, and improvisation characteristics of modern dance. Unpredictable changes in rhythm, speed, and direction are often used, as well. Additionally, contemporary dance sometimes incorporates elements of non-western dance cultures, such as elements from African dance including bent knees, or movements from the Japanese contemporary dance, Butoh.See Contemporary workshops
