In the 80th's, one of the most beloved artists were Nesrin Topkapi. Nesrin was the first dancer to perform a show on Turkish TV at a time when belly dancing was banned. She started to teach and was popular with German students who visited Turkey. In the 90s, Nesrin established a school of oriental dance in Germany.
Burcin Orhon is one of the biggest stars of contemporary belly dance. She is the daughter of a famous Turkish composer. In her youth, Burcin studied ballet and tried out for the national ballet troupe of Turkey. She did not pass the try-outs and sought other means to dance professionally. When she tried oriental dance, she found success. Her ballet training is very prevalent in her dance, trading hip shimmies for highly extended kicks and very wide plies.
