Belly Dance Daggers

Knives or daggers are often used in Middle Eastern dances especially from Iraq, Persia (Iran) and Afghanistan. The dance is often called Kawleeya and is most closely related to the Khaleegi group of dances. The Kawleeya dancer will often hold a small dagger in each hand and, smiling, poke them rhythmically into her hips, belly and shoulders. There are numerous stories about the meaning of the prop. Gypsies in this part of the world were often blacksmiths, so they would have made daggers. The daggers are said to mean “I would follow my lover into the afterlife.”
