Description of the sword:
Scimitars are swords that are deeply curved and razor sharp enough to cut through human flesh with one strike. The blade has a very broad curve near the tip making the blade single edged and very powerful. This shows that the sword is indeed a very dangerous weapon to use especially if used for dancing. The belly dancing scimitar sword is a variant of the original sword. The belly dancing sword is not as razor sharp as the native and also has a broader curve to allow safety and improved balance. This sword is also more light weighted that enables quicker movements with the sword and easy to perform dancing moves with. This variation is introduced just for the purpose of belly dancing and is not ‘battle suited’. The sword is also adopted for appearance with variations made to shine on blade and handle that enhance the beauty of the sword.
Belly dancing originally comes from Middle East from thousands of years ago, being the traditional dance for various forms of celebration, especially war victory celebrations and festivals. Sword dancing has been a culture that comes from various regions in the world being considered as an ancient skill. The tradition of dancing with swords was used as a sign of carrying their husband’s honor and dignity. Superstitions include that a sword dance at a wedding brings good luck and prosperity. A common story about sword dances is that slaves would balance swords on their heads and perform other rituals as a way of showing freedom even with a sword on the head. Sword dancing was not common in the Middle East, some men used to perform a similar dance with martial art moves and swords in Egypt however women were never regarded as being able to use swords for props in dancing. This tradition however spread with the scimitar, being the traditional weapon through Middle East was bound to end up being the routine sword used in sword dances and as the traditional dance for celebrations was belly dancing, it was only natural for both of these to merge into one unique yet traditional dance routine of belly dancing with swords. The dances were initially made to represent the power and strength of women illustrating their abilities. The dance was performed with the women balancing the sword on their hand or on the floor and performing various dance moves and that dance was considered as a sign of balance and strength of women. This skill required a lot of practice, posing the threat of getting chopped into pieces due to the razor sharp sword, yet it was widely common in all festivals.
