Fifi Abdou Dancer

Fifi Abdou (Arabic: فيفي عبده‎) (born Atiyat Abdul Fattah Ibrahim; November 9, 1953) is an Egyptian belly dancer and actress. She has been described as "synonymous with belly dancing in the years she was performing." In her acting career, she is known as the woman-empowering type where, rarely in Egyptian culture and film, she beats up and overpowers men. Abdou was born in Cairo on November 9, 1953. Her father is a policeman and she has 11 siblings. When she was 12 years old she joined a beledi troupe and later found work as a model. She began to gain attention in the early 1970s when she became the main attraction at the Arizona. Over the years she danced at many other venues such as Le Meridien, Mena House Oberoi and the El Gezira Sheraton. Her performances usually lasted around two hours and she received up to $10,000 per performance. In addition to dancing, her routines often included circus tricks and even rapping. The Moroccan newspaper La Vie Eco reported in 2004 shortly before her retirement that she possessed 5,000 costumes with the most expensive being valued at $40,000. Abdou has been criticized by some Egyptians who see her dancing as contrary to the tenets of Islam.
