Dancing, Dining and Diversity

Soraiah Saied of Egypt

Top Egyptian Star Returns to the City
Last year Sorraiah Saied came into our personal lives and stole our hearts. She is by far one of the most amazing instructors we’ve ever encountered and we are overjoyed at her return to Essence of Bellydance 2016. We hope she continues to be a featured star and sister to this outstanding Raqs Conference. Get the schedule here

class
Classes are comfortable and the crowds are friendly…

We hear so many stars, fans and conference attendees rave about Essence and how they can’t wait to return. We agree. It is one of the top notch stops on the dance calendar that we prepare long in advance to attend. The hotel is incredible with modern condo style luxury suites at phenomenal prices. It’s situated in the heart of a very happening and upbeat city that is diverse and easy to navigate thanks to local transit and car services. Most restaurants close around 2am-3am and really famous southern spots stay open all night with 24/7 menus like The Diner franchise located at pulsepoints around the city and deep into the suburbs. Atlanta is one of the best places to host an event and it is home to our favourite annual dance events.

Atlanta is also home to our main HQ, MissBellydance.com. For over 13 years we’ve been raqin’ out with fellow Atlantans and keeping our prices low because we make a lot of our costumes ourselves. Come say hi to members of our team at Essence of Bellydance. We’d love to meet you in person. We’ll be doing trivia and other fun things online that weekend. Those who are present will be able to pick up prize packs and discounts on their favourite costumes. So much to look forward to this September. We can’t wait to spend it with Sorraiah Saied, Team Essence and YOU!

Keep it Raqin’

Competition Couture from MissBellydance.com

There’s so much going on in dance! In particular, there are opportunities to enter competitions in dance this fall. From coast to coast dancers have the opportunity to make a name for themselves through presenting their best of bellydance and raqs sharqi. Showing off your top skills is best done in a great costume.

MissBellydance.com bedluh’s are custom made to fit all dancers in a variety of sizes, it’s tailor made.

Some competitions require dancers to submit one video where they are wearing regular dance clothes and not a costume. We have understood that this is for judges to see the bare skills at the preliminary level before narrowing it down to the top 10 for competition. We suggest wearing something that still makes you look and feel good like frilly cute things. Be sure to check all of the requirements. You may have to wear something very plain but if you don’t have to then go all out with some awesome casual and cute raqswear.

For men in preliminaries, a great shirt, a vest and or cool harem pants will do you fine. Pair it with a great hipscarf and a comfortable t-shirt. You can raqs ’em and flatter ’em with cute styles and still stay within the rules. We wish everyone the best as they compete this summer and fall!

Hope to see you all at upcoming shows and more!

Bellydance Presentation

A troupe or sololist’s overall presentation should not only demonstrate their best skills but also their best selves. It’s one of the reasons we’re striving to provide a diverse offering of raqs wear and bellydance costumes to our fans. We want everyone to have a wide variety of options that fit their individual “Bellydance Presentation” needs. This now extends to hair and make-up.

Earlier this year we teamed up with HairLaVie haircare, testing out what products worked best. Some of you all know our product manager, Judith. She is championing these great hair products because of the amazing results she has seen after using them on her own hair. In the coming days we’ll be talking about specific differences in this hair care line as compared to what we’ve been using ourselves.

HairlaVie

We’ve shared with you our costume and hair care suggestions. We want to hear from you about your favourite make-up and feature many of you in your MissBellydance.com costumes while wearing your favourite brand of eye shadow, lipstick and more.

Haute Couture for the Holidays Part II

image

More parties are on the schedule and it’s time to pick out something to wear. We’re thinking holiday brunches deserve a little blue. We’ve got just the thing or for you. A cute wrap top and a skirt with blue statement necklace. It’s the perfect ensemble for a cool day out, keeping you in style and looking stellar.

This is one of several casual outfits we keep in stock. The print is paisley and the blue border gives it another dimension. When complimented by your favourite piece of jewelry it sets the outfit off, making spectacular and elegant. We’ve featured this in person at fashion shows and gala events, so far so nice! Everyone loves it when they get it in their hands.

Raqs On!
