Wedding Traditions

Bellydance has been an essential part of Egyptian wedding celebrations for many years, representing joy and fertility, and bringing a wonderful party atmosphere! Traditionally, the bride would go to her new home in a candlelit procession through the streets of Cairo, led by a bellydancer and accompanied by drummers. Today, couples often replace the parade through the streets (the ‘Zaffat al Arousa’) with a procession at the wedding reception, where the bride and groom make a grand entrance, led by the dancer and drummers!

The bellydancer is traditionally accompanied by a live orchestra, and the dancer, musicians and guests all share in the joy of the occasion. Rachael’s shows are always improvised, so she can respond to your guests and create a unique performance just for you. And for a truly authentic bellydance experience, ask about booking a live drummer, or a full Arabic band!
