Egyptian bellydance from the 70s: Heyatim

Heyatim is an Egyptian dance star from the 70s. Even on video she oozes confidence but it doesn't come across to the viewer as the in-your-face aggression we see from some of today's dance 'stars'. Heyatim's style is relaxed and fluid.  This video is also an example of the camera styles back then, where every possible backdrop is used (forest, sky, fish tank etc etc) which can be very distracting.
