an A will of course have a longer belly drape
back strap chain is 37" long...not that it really makes a difference cause this set should be sewn onto a sturdy base

includes an extra matching belly drape i just scored. was gonna make a matching head piece. can also be attached for extra coverage on belly or to make bra cover larger

43" end to end. can be shortened with proper tools like pliers

My first public performance (eek)... [May. 25th, 2008|06:08 pm]

[Current Mood |nervousnervous]

I will be bellydancing as part of Bedazzle For Just Because at Yeadon Town Hall (near Leeds) on the evening of 1 June. I'm in a group routine and have a tiny little solo.

Its for a good cause. Just Because are a charity set up by UK bellydancers as a breast cancer charity for sufferers and potential suffers in Egypt.

Come if you can...

Photographs ... [May. 3rd, 2008|05:22 am]

[Current Music |Solace - Balance]

I've been asked to attend a few haflas, my mobile studio in tow, to do 15 minute shoots with attendees for a small fee.
However, I'm not sure how much to charge. 
Currently I charge £45 an hour for a shoot - however I'm unsure whether people would pay £15 for a 15 minute shoot with me.
So ... what I'm getting at ... is if I turned up at your Haffla what would you be willing to pay to have a 15 minute shoot?  The outcome would be a disc of your hi-res and optimized for web photos as well as a £5 voucher off a full hours shoot with me.

You can see my work with bellydancers here:

Tribal Bellydance in London? [Apr. 18th, 2008|09:02 am]
UK Bellydance Community

Hello all,
I'm new to bellydance and would really love to start taking some classes. I'm particularly interested in <b>tribal bellydance</b> - but, is this a type of bellydance you have to approach with previous bellydance experience or can a total newbie begin here? On that note, does anyone know of a good (non-intimidating) class for beginners in the <b>London</b> area? (I'm in N.London).
Thank you for your help!

Hafla! [Nov. 16th, 2007|07:49 pm]

[Current Mood |hopefulApprehensive]

Calling all Sheffield peeps!

Just a quick reminder about the Boomshanka Tribal Hafla being held tomorrow night from 6:30pm at the church on Brocco Bank (just up the road from the roundabout outside Endcliffe Park), please forgive my awful venue description here, but I can't actually find any written information to tell me what this venue is really called!

The cost is £6 per person. Feel free to bring offerings for the buffet, middle-eastern in flavour if you can, although anything will be gladly accepted!

There will also be a few stalls (including the Debut offerings from Single Red Bead), a raffle, a live band and many performances by Boomshanka and others.

Self-confidence issues? [Nov. 1st, 2007|02:50 pm]
UK Bellydance Community

[Current Mood |enviousenvious]

Someone posted this on another forum in response to a rather dispirited post by a young bellydancer who worries that she is bigger than the other girls in her class. I think this is definitive proof that no matter what your size or your chosen style, you can be an amazing dancer, I just had to pass on the sentiment:
