Classwear / Other / Misc
The vendors below are a mixed bag. Some of these belly dance vendors sell good quality stageworthy Raqs Sharki / Cabaret / folkloric costuming. Use caution when selecting an appropriate costume for your belly dance performances. Seek advice from a reputable teacher to help you select an appropriate costume! A few of these vendors are more geared to tribal fusion or fusion belly dance items, but they have belly dance class wear, props, hip scarves, or other specialty items worth buying, so that is why they are included!
