What is this 'dance' that Madonna is doing with her hands?

I don't know if it's a dance or some sort of religious thing but what is she doing and what is it called?

Also she kind of does it in these performances too (don't have to watch these though to save time):

I know about the voguing thing.. I really don't think it's voguing, she makes these shapes and gestures with her hands. It looks Indian or something.

    I think you're referring to her "Vogue." It's a type of dance I guess you could say. She started it in the early 90's for her single, "Vogue," the second video you've linked to. It's nothing more than "Vogue: Strike A Pose"

    She's drawing from her interpretation of American belly dance for the most part.
