Beyond the meaning

Many grew up surrounded by “cabaret” style belly dancers. Webster’s defines cabaret as a restaurant providing entertainment, or a floor show provided by a restaurant or night club. Nowadays, many belly dancers in the U.S. do not like to use the word cabaret because in Egypt, small establishments that we might call dives have taken to calling themselves cabarets, while larger, more expensive, supposedly higher class places call themselves night clubs.

American Cabaret, the original fusion belly dance, is accessible and fun for everyone, regardless of their dance education. Additionally, with the much more solid foundation of knowledge in the U.S. about individual “pure” ethnic dances, fusion becomes that much more rich and varied, allowing dancers to be that much more informed, powerful, and creative! Go fusion, go CABARET!
