A Russian belly dancer has been arrested by police in Egypt for dancing in too ‘provocative’ a manner while she entertained an audience in a nightclub. 31-year-old belly dancer Ekaterina Andreeva, who uses the stage name Gawhara, was dancing in Giza in north-western Egypt but was arrested after a video of her dancing surfaced online.
While the crowd at the club seemed thrilled by her dancing, Egyptian police were less impressed as they arrested her on suspicion of inciting young people to disobedience and immorality.
The video, taken by someone in the crowd, shows Andreeva busting her moves in a low-cut dress which has no back and is split up her right side.
Ekaterina, from Perm Krai in Russia’s Volga federal district, is captured jiggling her hips and whirling her breasts while the crowd whoop and cheer.
Although the audience was clearly having fun, the local authorities looked upon her dancing a little less kindly.
Egyptian prosecutor Hatim Fadl said: “Rules for the dance performance oblige the performer to wear undrwear of any colour but beige. Gawhara did not have any undrwear, and of course it was provocative.”
