Links to Costuming Tutorials and Articles
Mao at Sparkly Belly shares everything she can with her belly dance community, including articles, YouTube tutorials of start-to-finish costumes, and Facebook groups of dancers who can find support and share their progress as they build costumes. She shares much more than costuming knowledge, such as website building tutorials and articles about the business of professional dance. She offers online costuming classes and she has recently written an e-book as well. And she is a complete darling. http://www.sparklybelly.com/welcome
