This blog post started life as a Facebook post that got too big to handle ! I started listing my favorite small business' that serve the belly dance community and the list just grew and grew ! It feels like its time to set up a virtual shopping mall where we can find all our favorite stores in one place. I have only included business' that I have used and products that I love. My FB friends sent me lots of other recommendations, and once I have made a purchase with them, I will consider adding them here.
Dawn Devine has a huge range of wonderful books available on Amazon. Check out the full range here:
There are three big on-line belly dance stores that I regularly shop, Dahlal, Miss BellyDance and BellyDance.com. Between them they cover almost all a belly dancer could desire !
DVDs and videos ! - There are way too many to mention, but these are the ones that I have LOVED this year :
Finally ! - I would like to offer you a flick through my latest book "Becoming A Belly Dancer: From Student to Stage" written with Dawn Devine, Alisha Westerfeld and Poppy Maya. Simply use the arrow to flick through a few of the 400 plus pages. Becoming a Belly Dancer is the stagecraft handbook for belly dancers and is available now on Amazon. Check out the reviews - it makes the perfect gift for the belly dancers of all styles !
