ABOUT THE IMAGE
Samia Gamal is considered one of the greatest dancers of the Golden Age of Egyptian dance.
He was the only artist that influenced generations of his time, both in the East than in the West. Raqs Sharqi brought up from Egypt, and from there to Hollywood in the schools of Europe.
On stage, at her debut as a soloist, Samia forget the choreography, the audience begins to boo and she runs away, forced by the choreographer to return to the scene, Samia, panicked, takes off her shoes and begins to dance improvising. The audience cheered and since that time, she was called “the bare-feet dancer “.
Acclaimed as an artist abroad, many directors want her in their films.
Until his death in 1994, she made a very retired life. All calls from Europe and America to teach were categorically rejected. She felt an artist and a performer, not a teacher.
Her legacy are 84 movies in which she is the protagonist .
Her unique style, full of arabesques, pirouettes, varied movements with arms and veil, inspired, inspire and will inspire generations of dancers.
A little curiosity: in the French film “Ali Baba and the 40 thieves” Samia wore a jewel to cover the navel: no dancer before her had ever done.
The fabric is a 100% cotton.
