    Thank you so much for this amazing book! I am so happy with the service I received and for this incredible belly dance resource! Dawn is so lovely and took the time to answer all of my questions about the book and included a personal note inside the cover! I have immediately started reading this book and can't put it down! It is filled with great tips, advice, planning strategies, and all kinds of practical applications. It will definitely make any dancer feel connected to the bellydance sisterhood and will help her to progress along her journey. It is a definite "must" for the serious belly dancer's study collection to take this beautiful art to the next level. Thank you to the authors for this wonderful resource! I will be buying more books! :)

    I received my book in the mail just yesterday, and I am half-way through my (first) reading! It is just packed full of information, and fascinating! I am devouring the historical parts in the beginning, and learning so many new things about this beautiful, mysterious fabric! This book is so readable and engaging--never dry, and I have not even gotten to the "Inspiration Gallery" of photos to drool over. Thank you, Dawn, for this gift to us. All your years of hard work and research gives such a rich dimension to this beloved textile. Now when I see it, I will not just see its obvious beauty, but will know so much more! Awesome, awesome, awesome!

I find it difficult to do custom orders long distance and prefer to work with clients who are able to come to my studio for fittings and design consultations. If you are located in the Greater Bay/ San Francisco Area, you can contact me for my current availability.
