Fancy and Fine!

We’re excited about the great shows coming up this weekend at Essence of Bellydance. We try to go to as many conferences and bellydance shows near and far as possible. This year’s program features Egyptian icons like Mohamed Shahin! Also taking the stage and teaching workshops is Andrus Ramir of Miami! Suhaila Salimpour will be in town as will Colleen Shakti and dance greats from around the globe.

Each night are big shows and gala events that warrant a fancy dress or two. We’ve got some fun things you can wear for your night on the town at Essence of Bellydance. Sorraiah’s Star and Lycra Pants Set.

 

Tickets are still available if you want to grab a few for you and your friends! Click here or show up at the Twelve Atlantic Station starting the 15th to get your tickets in person. Downtown and Midtown Atlanta are quite cool and comfortable at this time of year! We look forward to seeing you there!

Back to Classic Basics that are Bold

We’re excited about dance class this fall as highly skilled instructors take their place at the head of the classroom. They are ready to give it their all imparting what often feels like sacred knowledge to their students. You want to make sure you’re at your very best and ready to take your skills to the next level. Nothing better than a really comfortable yet personalized dance class set to get you going.

For kids, we recommend this great unitard that stretches and fits well, giving them room to move comfortably. It’s a basic design that can be modified with a hip scarf or accessory according to the dance genre of their choice. It is available in black and is long lasting so you can throw it in the washer wear after wear.

Basic Leotard

For the modern dancer who is taking several courses, try this great top and bottom set with the word dance embossed on the side. You can go from class to class in this one and represent every part of the art you love.

For our raqs fanatics, a cool set of pantaloons with a choli top will always be in. Try this with one of our many veils or coin belts to suit the style of your choice.

Perfect Pair of Pants – The Haili

Every year we gloat over the perfect pair of pants because we seriously cherish our pantaloons. They are incredible! Roomy and comfortable, coming in a ton of different colours we can’t deny they are some of the best out there. Of recent we’ve been toying with the idea of changing them up, still offering our signature sequined sets but giving others a bit of a boost.
Haili

One of the sets we liked the most from a line we created some years ago are these. They are the Haili pant! They cross over in the front giving you a full leg and a really neat sequined, elegant shape from the hip down. They flow, flutter and are a lot of fun! We’ll be focusing a few cool ones in the coming weeks. But try these on for now!

Summer Shows Continue!

Getting Ready for Festival Season

In just a few weeks we’ll start what is known as Festival Season. During this time we honour ceremonies and celebrations from a variety of cultures that are close to us. From religious to the secular we’re looking forward to recognizing every single one of them. It’s crucial during this time to remember to do research and translations on some of the songs we’re either asked or expecting to perform to for audiences.

Spiritual Dance attire in the west often consists of long skirts and robes (and sometimes thobes) replicating the ensembles that are actually worn in the east today. If you’re looking for the basics of spiritual and modern dance adaptations let us know. You can find an ensemble for men in our new arrivals sectionmen in our new arrivals section.

We’re always excited to know where our fans and followers will go and celebrate their favourite fall festivals and ceremonies. Send us photos of your journeys through cultural dance and more. We’ll be giving away prizes once a month to those who send us photos with the hashtag #FallFestival starting September 21st until the 21st of December. Let us know how we can help you prepare!

Advice for New Troupes & Dance Teams

MissBellydance.com would like to say Mabrook to all troupes that had their debut at Attack of the Bellydancers 2017. Our archivist sent us photos and information about the show that left us very excited about the new dance teams in Atlanta. Just some advice from inside the sewing halls of our store as we want to see you continue and thrive in Atlanta! We’re here to support you!

Sabia, Maiea and Hasna dancing together! 🙂 We love this!

1. Don’t give up. It’s easy to start something and then let it fall because you got busy

2. Set goals for the group. Aim to perform at x conference or something by x date

3. Be friends first. Do not take yourselves too seriously…encourage each other and call each other out when you see one falling. Be pillars for each other in the most kind and supportive way

4. Stay creative! Don’t get to comfortable in any stage of our work, always think of what you can do differently but with respect to the cultures you represent in every way

5. Remember your roots and the roots of the art/dance – needs no explanation

We can’t wait to see what else you bring to life for our beloved international town, community and raqs world! We’re also happy to hear that  money for SEEDs Atlanta was raised! The Atlanta Culture Club will be making a donation as well this year! Very happy to be involved in that! More info and praise coming from our way!
