Hermine the Dancer (1959)

This is a short clip from the 1959 Egyptian film by El Sayed Bedeir, She Lived for Love, showing a performance by the dancer Hermine. Hermine is not famous and she is not in the same league as the great Egyptian dancers like Samia Gamal and Naima Akef, but she is the only one I know about who made her own dance poster. She Lived for Love is one of the five films I know where Hermine dances. Her dance is part of a wedding sequence and has no significance in the plot. This is the best clip I've seen of a dance by the poster girl Hermine.
