Creating handmade quality items at affordable prices for all sizes of dancers.

Halimeda's Oasis started out as a collection of dance costuming and practice wear for Halimeda's dance students. During the 1990's, Halimeda provided a variety of costumes for her students; some were hand sewn and others were imported. Other dancers outside of In Step Studio, Inc. started asking Halimeda to bring costuming to their local events for sale. As a result, Halimeda now brings costuming to a variety of shows and workshops in the Florida, Georgia, Alabama and Mississippi area. With the addition of the travel to the teaching and performing schedule, it became necessary to have help for the handmade items. Two wonderful seamstresses joined the shop and continue to create new dance wear. Both Beth and Lee are dancers, performers and love to sew for other dancers. Mike, also a dumbec drummer, does the photography and shipping.

We love to create quality costuming for all sizes of dancers!

Shop members

  • Halimeda

    Owner, Designer, Creator

    Halimeda's Oasis started as a way to get quality custom made items for Halimeda's students. It continues with the same philosophy, though it takes several of us today to meet the demand to create, sew and ship world wide.

  • Beth


    Beth creates many of the truly gorgeous ATS bras and belts in the shop. She has that very special artistic ability to tweak the basic design into something special.

  • Mike Redig

    Photographer, Shipper

    Mike loves the art of photography. While most of his work is done underwater and in other nature settings, he assists with Halimeda's by photographing the beautiful costuming. He also assists with the shipping when needed!

  • Lee


    Lee has been creating belly dance and tribal costuming for many, many years. She not only does very detailed work but has ideas for new items continuously. She has provided many of our special dancer items such as cropped tops, skirts, and belts.

Production partners

  • Sugar Petals

    Uses years of sewing experience to produce some of the greatest quality body stockings on the market.
