- In Egypt, a degraded class of public dancers, male and female, by some considered a race of Gipsies, devoted to the amusement of the lowest populace: sometimes erroneously confounded with the almas. See alma. Also ghaziyeh.
- From Arabic the plural غوازي (singular غازية), the feminine of غازي ghazi "raider, aggressor, conqueror". The dancers were so called because they were said to "conquer" the hearts of their audience. (Wiktionary)
