Alima – A Fan For Life

Alima is one of those fans you look forward to seeing at a show or workshop. She’s everyone’s friend…and we do mean everyone! There’s not a Raqs Star she doesn’t know or one that doesn’t know her. At just about every event, she is requested in VIP section and was recently asked by the Salimpour Company to be a member of the Bal Anat Tribute show that will tour globally in the coming months. Her dedication to the dance, the art and the culture are outstanding and we’re proud to call her not just a friend…but family!

The photo above speaks for itself…a kind, loving and gentle person who supports the people of the cultures she loves and in many ways has adopted. It’s an honour to see her decked out in MissBellydance raqs wear in her photoshoot with Fox Gradin. Alima is wearing our Turquoise Kalidescope ensemble, famous for the cool colourway and cool yoga style pants with panels and fluted sleeves. You can see it here in both the turquoise and creamy peach colourway as well.

She wears it well! Be sure to connect with Alima at dance shows in Atlanta and beyond!

What’s in a Dance Floor


The floors in our sister dance studio AFBD were recently changed. They are floors designed to improve shock absorbtion and to keep performers comfortable. We’re still learning about the floors and asking dancers that stream out of the studio after hours of classes what are their thoughts and how do they feel.

We’ve heard nothing but good things. Several mentioned that not every studio has them. They said they could tell a difference in their level of soreness the next day. Mind you, this was after one of Suhaila Salimpour’s visits. She offered Jamila Salimpour certification course here in Atlanta this time. These floors are very similar if not identical to the floors in her own studio. The dancers we spoke with all reported feeling quite good and not as sore or worn out after their training. That speaks volumes.


Because the studio is 100% used by AFBD with the occasional use for photoshoots, dance parties, lectures and more, it was not MissBellydance’s decision to make the change. Leadership of AFBD should be credited for this and we hope that all who come by and purchased clothing and classes will benefit from this investment.

Bring Me This Dress!!



This is what we’ve been waiting for…a bonafide Beladi Dress that meets the standards and then some. We wanted a stylish homage to the region that didn’t look like it was just another tourist attraction. Enough with the kitsch and on with a respectable piece of clothing that really shines and celebrates the culture.

This garment has stretch but it’s vertical vs. horizontal. This means the pattern is not going to go sideways in an odd fashion. This is important as patterns that stretch can distract from even the most skilled of performances.

We know you will enjoy this dress! It’s the highlight of our Raqs wardrobe right now. While many new garments are to come they will be limited edition and we will not resell them or remake them more than a few times. This Beladi Dress is here for just a few weeks and then it’s onward and upward for the next awesome item. Call or email us today to place your order. If you need a custom size, smaller or larger it’s $10 extra and will be made with care by our team.

We can’t wait to see it on you. Send us photos and we’ll happily share it and feature your show.




Happy Dancing!
AA @ Team MBD
