It is difficult and untraceable as to which country gave the gift of belly dancing to the world. It is often referred that it has been in existent since women have existed. It has been in practice since thousands of years in various cultures for occasions that involved emoting joy or gaiety by women dance.  
There have been indications that Belly Dancing may have originated in India during the pre Aryan period or Ancient Egypt. Some discoveries also support the theory that Belly Dancing was prevalent dates back further than India and Egypt and was practiced in the cultures of Neolithic Europe, Africa and the East around 6000 or even earlier than that perhaps many years ago.
