The Male Belly Dancers | 101 Subway

Busting gender stereotypes with grace and a quick shake of the hips.

If you thought belly dancing was just for women, think again. Eshan Hilal and Vasu Chauhan are just two of India's budding young male belly dancers. With the grace and sensuality to match any woman, they'll shimmy and shake their way into your hearts. Like they say, dance like no one's watching; eventually, they'll stop and take notice.

101 Subway takes a look at people whose beliefs, values, styles, and attitudes differ from that of the prevailing culture. Subway looks at India’s evolving sub culture scene across trends like Cosplay, BMX, Graffiti Art, Street Art and even the culture of weed.
