Baladi Argentinean Style: A Bellydance style of Argentina! It is different from the traditional Egyptian Baladi; using many steps in a different time: fancy footwork, surprising accents, passionate feeling. The home of innumerable immigrants from the Middle East, Argentina has given to the world of bellydance a particular style and a wealth of musical compositions that organically and brilliantly blend the Arabic and the Latin heart. Baladis are the perfect example of this, learn to dance them with the Argentinean style!
