Authorities Launched Investigation into Fake ‘Belly Dance Class’ Poster

Saudi Arabia security authorities have launched an investigation into a fake poster purporting to offer belly dancing classes for men and women.

The poster claimed that the training will be conducted in the Red Sea city of Jeddah by famous Egyptian belly dancer Fifi Abdou.

The sessions will cost SR3,000 and the successful participants will be given certificates of merit, the poster purports.

A picture of the poster went viral on social media, triggering shock, suspicion, and condemnation among users.

Officials from Makkah Province dismissed the poster as a hoax and insisted that the claims totally lacked credibility, Saudi daily Okaz reported on Wednesday.
