The term "belly dance" is a translation of the French term "danse du ventre", which was applied to the dance in the Victorian era, and referred to Egyptian and oriental female dances. In Arabic, the dance is known as Raqs Sharqi ("Eastern Dance") or as Raqs Baladi in Egyptian Arabic ("Country Dance" or "Folk Dance").
