Beautiful Pictures:

The Belly Dance Gallery is a great site filled with pics, pics, and more pics of dancers. It's a great place to get costume ideas, and it also features a beautiful set of wedding pics (of a belly dancer's wedding, of course!)

Tatiana is a German belly dancer whose website contains a gallery of her drawings of Midle Eastern dancers. Many of the sketches have wonderful and unique costuming ideas, and they all have a sweet aura to them.

Just For Fun:

Omphalo-stepses is lots of fun! "Shanmonster's"  site has a historical bellydancing/cheesecake gallery and a hilarious page of animated dancers ("Dance, Dancers, Dance"). The personal accounts of her performances are pretty chuckle-worthy too!

Desert of Maine:
If you thought "Desert Dancers" was an odd sort of name for a dance troupe from Maine, think again! We have a bona fide desert just north of Freeport. See for yourself!
