Dance romper with pockets and print? Yes, please! We’ve got the set for you! You wanted more dance inspired lifestyle wear and we are delivering it to you in unique patterns and lovely sizes that fit more than three people. Enjoy this romper that can be worn in a variety of ways. This cute dance inspired print has pantaloons that double as a romper when you expand the top and wear it as a halter.

A second outfit includes the top which pairs well with the pantaloons in their unexpanded stage. This ensemble looks great with accessories and can be worn to dance shows, conferences and gala events where you want to turn heads in a cultural festival fashion. We love this and so have all those who’ve seen it during our trunk shows and studio programs. Be one of the first and only to have it…cause guess what… there are only 8 of these. You’ve got a short period of time to grab this and then it’s gone forever in this print.

Here it is…order today!

Dance Parents & Dance Moms

We want to thank all mothers that attend shows and are super supportive of the dancers in their lives. Mothers go beyond being those who we grew up with, they are the ones that were there for us when our own parents were not able to be there. You know those parents that took other kids (including you) to dance class and then took you out for some cool meal afterwards. There are tons of people who are being nice and kind, parent-like to young ones worldwide. We see you and we thank you!

Today through the morning you can save 15% on your orders. We suggest getting your dance mom something really awesome. Jewelry, costume pieces or a full set that you know she’d love! Use Mother2018 at missbellydance.com and show your dance parents that you care!

Send in your photos of you and your dance parents for a chance to win a $50 MissBellydance.com credit on your next order! Post the pictures in the comments section of this post, on our facebook page or tag us on Instagram @missbellydance

Sheer Sets for Summer

Hot summer days are ahead and we’re ready with its of cool sheers and lovely lace. We’re grateful that our luxurious sets are so popular with our fans and followers. Which one did you choose for your Raqs wardrobe?

A suggestion we have is to get one colour of each in your favourite lace sets. These items set you apart from others in competitions. They are memorable and can be mixed, matched and layered to your liking. To conceal your outfit at festivals where there are few dressing rooms and backstage is just cramped, consider a chebba style jacket to cover up without getting too hot. This is certainly not the weather for velvet.

Jewelry on Tour

It’s quite a historic weekend for those that have been following the history of the Salimpour family. On a recent chat with one of the members touring with Bal Anat, we learned about their practice time and how much work goes into excelling at the format.

Another thing we noticed was our dance sisters wearing MissBellydance.com jewelry! These pieces shown are from a collection we have been carrying for over 10years. They are our signature look with nods to all the cultures of the backgrounds of our staff. We are a global group bringing people together through dance. It’s an honour to see many dancers wearing these to showcase the various cultures that make up Raqs Sharqi!

Thank you!! We are counting down the days to the tour’s stop in Atlanta! More on that next month!

Flash Sale Anyone?

What is a flash sale? Flash sales provide the perfect opportunity for dancers to grab as much stuff as they possibly can for an ultra low price. We believe in providing these types of purchasing options for our followers as an added relief from the stress of clothes shopping. Dancers today are always on the go and they need a break. Flash sales allow the dancer to grab a ton of items they may have wanted to try out for a very long time.

 

Flashsale1

MissBellydance.com has a number of sales and promotions throughout the  year but we particularly love this one because you can really stock up on what you need and not think twice about it. What products are you purchasing this weekend? Let us know! All submissions will be placed into a drawing for a MissBellydance.com prize pack which includes hipscarves and select jewelry from our collection!

Shimmy Mob 2018

ShimmyMob is an event where many dancers and bellydance enthusiasts gather to perform a specific choreography that is shared among dancers virtually and then done in 3D or live in designated places around the globe. This year we are supporting Valencia, a local dancer, who is organizing Shimmy Mob in Dekalb County. This is particularly exciting because we’ve always wanted to join in and here we are with a group that we really enjoy hanging out with at shows.

In the past ten years there have been a number of shimmy themed events that raise money and or awareness to various causes. In years past we had representatives at Shimmy-a-thon, a fundraiser where people shimmied for a length of time to raise money for Cystic Fibrosis. There’ve been many other ways in which the art of Raqs Sharqi brought people together for the greater good.

MissBellydance.com will be holding a drawing for Shimmy Mob participants. Anyone who shows up and participates on Valencia’s team will be entered to win a set of hipscarves from our online store – a total value of $85. We’re looking at other teams to assist and help this year as well as looking to attend more events where there is a community focus and a giving component. We love to help out where we can.

Long zaghareets to Valencia and her team – we hope to see others follow suit!

Put a Little Chiffon in Your Spring

Spring is just a few days away and we’re already putting our fun and frilly chiffon skirts out for our followers and fans. These are very popular pieces that you can mix, match and layer. The panel skirts are full yet lightweight. We made these ourselves very carefully with the dancer’s comfort and ease in mind. The waist is elastic and has a closure on the side. You can take advantage of the layers using them as a sort of side slit where you can tuck in a veil from hip to hip for added volume. You can never have too much hip in Raqs Sharqi!

Another thing to note is the way in which the garment swirls as you spin and dance. It’s so light that even the slightest move shifts the panels of the skirt while the comfortable and secure waist stays in place. We also love these skirts because they are made to look good during a number of different styles and genres under the bellydance umbrella. You can wear it for Lebanese style sets as well as Egyptian sha’abi…you can make it work for just about anything.

The best part is they come in a variety of colours match several of our tops. You can also wear them year-round but we love showcasing them for spring due to the breezy, cool comfort of the fabric and the ease of wear! Let us know which one you choose. Also enjoy 10% off your pick using the code #SpringDance on MissBellydance.com!

Enjoy and thanks for reading!
