Dance, Parties

dance evening

For the Old Egyptians, dancing in generaly was something much more important than some ordinary amusement, especialy before the XXth century B.C. The naked body of a female dancer was performing the Neith, the body of the Great Mother, the universe, whose part is also and our Earth. A dancer had to be pliable, almost an acrobat, because of the various positions of the body which had to performe by dancing.
Except various instruments, very important details of a sound were palms claspings of the dancers, to a palm, to the own body, or even to a body of the other dancers.
On the picture above, there is a survey of a classical party with some dancers, from about the period of 18,19th dinasty, somewhere about the XIII century B.C. In those times, dancing also was and a part of amusement on the parties of a nobility, not only the religious performing as it was before.
A cups on the heads of the ladies on the picture, were a special dishes, from wich some ethereal oils were trickling slowly.
