Dances at the Overnight Desert Camp

Fire Dancing- Fire dancing can be enjoyed as a hobby, a sport, a performer or even as a spectator at the desert safari in Dubai. It was originated from many cultures and different practices. ‘Poi’ used as juggling props in this dance, originated from New Zealand and Egypt as well. The act of eating fire originated in India. As one of the elements of nature, fire was also worshipped in the ancient times in many countries over the world. But in spite of the confusion, it cannot be denied that fire dancing is very alluring and mesmerizing to tourists on a Dubai tour with One World.

Belly dancing- Everyone hears a lot about this dance at overnight desert safaris. Unlike what has been suggested by its name, it involves the movement of all parts of the body and not just the belly. This dance form originated in UAE but became a favourite of the western countries as well. Belly dancing is known to celebrate expressionism, art and health.

Tanoura Dancing- Tanoura is usually performed by males. This dance is known for the colourful skirts worn and the extremely fast paced rotations made by them. The rotations are practiced to attain inner purity and to be one with God. The entire act is a story that talks about how man can connect with the Almighty as land connects with the sky. This mysterious dance emphasizes on rotations which according to traditional belief is the basis of human existence. Tanoura dancers have special light-bulbs in their costumes that are lit during the sequence that depicts ‘new life’.
