Guo Wei is one of China's pre-eminent raqs dancers and has more recently gained international attention thanks to his collaboration with the Bellydance Superstars. For those of us who struggle valiantly with the veil, this [heavily edited] performance is enough to make you either (a) start working on your technique for hours on end or (b) throw up with envy.
