Belly Dance prizes

Soul Dance Tours are amazing!!

HERE’S HOW >>>> http://www.souldance.com.au/tours-special-offer.htm

And for those in a position to up and GO – check out this trip at an all time low price less than it was ten years ago!

I went on this tour and it was incredible. One of the best experiences of my life. That price is in AUD – and yes dancers, drummers and just ordinary folk from any country can go on the tour (although the win a costume or drum bit is only for aussies).

It includes regular things like accommodation and sightseeing plus dance classes  (see soul dance website for exact details).

Tourism is way down in Egypt so you have many of the once crowded tourist hotspots to yourself. Perfect for photos. Margaret that runs these tours just got back from 9 weeks in Egypt and tells me it is perfectly safe. Even better – I am trying to sort out my travel plans to meet up with this tour and say hello for a few days.

Me on a Soul Dance Tour of Egypt. Buy a costume, ride on a camel into the desert and get your photo taken in front of the pyramids. – Yeah you don’t that on a regular tour!

Not a great shot but here is me with Khariya Maazin – last of the ghawazee dancers – just after our dance class with her.

Nail Polish Love!

How is this for the love of belly dance. One of my students (Tahnee) spent an arduous afternoon painting her nails so she could come to class with ‘Belly Dance’ written on them. Talk about dedication!

I took the pictures with my phone as it was all that I had handy. Still, I think it is a great idea. I hadn’t realized that belly and dance each had 5 letters.

Have you ever gone the extra mile in your love of the dance? Feel free to tell me about it below.

Cheap, easy bling for troupes or any dancer

Rarely do mainstream stores stock affordable, large or even slightly exotic pieces of costume jewellery suitable for belly dance. So imagine my shock when I found these items in K-mart of all places! Now there are many, much fancier options available for dancers. I have even custom made necklaces and jewellery for specific costumes. However these are easily available, cheap and available in bulk making them really great for students on a budget and troupes.  So scan below and head into to k-mart to fill in any gaps in your accessories. There were several other variations in different colours too (Pics were taken in haste using my phone but you get the idea). I already have a very extensive necklace collection (some would call it an obsession!), so I only bought some of the flowers but just realised that I should have gotten some of the gold rings too as most of mine are silver.

Cheap and easy to match with costumes.

You could use this as a necklace or some serious appliqué for a belt.

Gold toned, large rings - bargain.

From memory this was only $4. It kind of has an almost pharonic feel I think , or could work for some tribal fusion outfits.

$6 for 3 rings, I only like 2 of them but hey at this price I am not concerned.

Jade Belly Dance is in no way associated with k-mart, this is an independent opinion.
