The sensual oriental solo dance of belly-dance, has been part of the Greek culture for many years due to Greece’s close location to Turkey and the Middle East. Especially after the Minor Asia catastrophe in 1923, this style of dance with sad lyrics and music was developed in many areas in Greece. Many archaeologists claim that Greek belly-dance existed during ancient and medieval years as an influence from the Arabic and Middle Eastern cultural exchange.
