of his later rhythmic directions. A highly acclaimed master of percussion, Hossam has collaborated with many artists such as The Rolling Stones, Page & Plant, and Peter Gabriel.

Belly Dance for Fitness & sFun
Middle Eastern Dance, or Bellydance as it is known to the western world, has a long and colorful history of being one of the world's oldest fitness disciplines. Originally performed by women, for women, sometimes even used as a ritual to aid in the birthing process, it does not only work out one's belly, but in fact works every part of the body with delicate, precise, isolated movements. Bellydance does however emphasize movements of the abdomen and pelvis, and is therefore an ideal way to develop deep abdominal core strength, gain control of those muscles as well as improve fluidity and flexibility of your lower body. Though physically challenging, belly dance is considered a low impact fitness routine, it is easy on joints and therefore very suitable for all ages including people recovering from trauma and injuries. Since Bellydance requires the use of resistance, even the most slow paced routine can burn up to 370 kcal per hour. Bellydance moves help to make muscles lean, improve posture, release healthy hormones into the bloodstream, and make a person feel beautiful, feminine and confident. Bellydance is fast becoming a revolution in the western world.
