Disney BellyDancers: Candle Tray

Balancing things on ones head, carrying water, food, and other goods  has been a traditional part of daily life for women throughout North Africa, the Mediterranean, the Middle East, and South West Asia. That’s why various folk dances have evolved that showcase a persons skill at balancing or present this part of daily life through dance or entertainment.

I had this imagine in my mind about Tiana carrying plates in Duke’s restaurant and I was all OMG this girl has such a good balancing point! Also candle’s light remember me fireflies going down the bayou, but let’s see the Trya’s origins:

source: middleeasterndance.homestead.c…

It is believed that Raqs as-Seneeya (رقص الصنية) developed out of the Moroccan Tea Ceremony. Tea is a very important staple of life.  It is not just a drink but something you do. It means entertaining guests, talking with friends or family and engaging in long standing tradition. 

In traditional Seneeya the tray has a pot full of hot tea and empty glasses.  once the dance is done the tea is immediately poured and served. It isn’t  just Bellydancing with a tray on the head it is an athletic display of strength and flexibility.

The dance has gained a great deal of popularity and has evolved both inside and outside of Morocco into a performance piece done in a full Bellydance bedlah and in a Raqs Sharqi style and context.  Dancers in these performances generally do not have tea in the pot (sometimes they don't even have a pot) and often put small lighted candles in the cups making it almost like a Moroccan styled Shamadan dance. 

As you can see Tiana's outfit is not a "classic" style, for her I preferred usa an ATS style because I thoughtit would have fit her personality better.

A Blessing

"The way you keep me guessing

I'm nodding and I'm yessing

I'll count it as a blessing

That I'm only

Un poco loco".
