You’re Invited to 3rd Coast Tribal

We’re so excited this is coming up! Have you got your tix yet? 3rd Coast Tribal is the largest tribal belly dance festival in the central USA. We want to see you there!

Come on out. The vibe is welcoming and fun. There are plenty of kickass teachers to study with, and wonderful evening shows to occupy your dreams! Top it all off with excellent, on-site restaurants and great shopping, and you’ve got an event that combats the post-holiday slump.

We’ll be there. Wanna know what we’re hauling in our vardo? Lots of fabulous things like the new Lux Skirt, Deluxe Ruffle Pants, plenty of our new tops and more! We’ll try to pack every length and size that we can for you, but if you have any special requests please let us know! Save on shipping fees and save more time for your dance by pre-ordering. Details will be posted soon on the 3rd Coast event invite or email info@sakkaraclothing.com.

That’s all for now, lovelies. Enjoy your holidays and HAPPY SHIMMIES! xo

Top Ten Reasons Why We Love Belly Dance

10.) We’ll never dance to rock music the same way ever again.
9.) It’s not just for the ladies.
8.) We contribute befuddling expressions to the American vernacular. In 100 years people will say, “Break a belly? WTH does that mean?”
7.) Finding costuming potential in unlikely sources (“Ooh, I love that shower curtain! Now, if I just attach some rings here and grab that plastic dinosaur…”)
6.) It has the same reality-altering benefits as using a 12-sided die or training in medieval combat. Not that we know anything about these things (coughcough).
5.) Chances of meeting someone famous increase by 5.586772%
4.) More sparklies, whenever we wish!
3.) If one can dream it, you can dance it.
2.) It is transformational for our minds and bodies. It feels great for dancers of all shapes and stripes. Don’t believe us? TRY IT!
1.) Belly dancers drink from the fountain of youth.
