Clanging cymbals, jingling bells and moving hips livened the stage at the Baltimore Museum of Art recently. Belly Dance Magic: An Evening with the Daughters of Rhea and Friends, performed by a dance troupe, featured Moorish, Turkish, Egyptian, tribal and cinematic-themed belly-dancing styles, punctuated with aerial circus arts.

Belly dancing, a dance form that dates back centuries, traditionally was performed by women for their family members, said Piper Hunt, a Daughter of Rhea who has been belly-dancing since she was a child.
