Black Friday and Holiday Shopping for Belly Dancers

It’s that time of year again–Holiday Season! I’d like to help you shop for the belly dance gear that will make great gifts this holiday season. Belly dancers love getting belly dance related gifts! And of course, we love to shop for ourselves too–I’ve even got my eye on a few things (you can check out my wishlist here). Here are some links to products that I love and I think you might love too. I’ve included coupon codes where available....

Choosing your first pair of finger cymbals (zills)

My continuing belly dance students are currently learning a fun choreography with finger cymbals.

Belly dance Q & A

Posted on Sep 11, 2011

I recently signed up with a new vendor service, called Thumbtack. This is your typical local vending site, like Yelp!, Local, Eventective, GigSalad or Gigmasters, only Thumbtack has some neat features on its site that I haven’t seen on any of the others, like a Q & A section where you are given a set of questions and are asked to answer them.
