In belly dance there are several props that can be used: swords, shamadans, veils, zills, snakes, cane, candle-trays or isis wings.
The sword dance is a mysterious and earthy dance that is very dramatic and of great impact. Great for stage or ‘dance floor’ areas where the audience isn’t too close to the performer.
Shamadans are used in traditional weddings to light the steps of the newly wed couple. Joyous and lively, it’s a great addition to weddings.
Veils are all about mystery and have an ethereal feel to them. They can be used for a whole performance or as an introduction to a stronger show and are beautiful to look at!
Zills are a fun way of adding ‘zing’ to a performance. They fill out the music and make the audience feel more engrossed as the sounds are surrounding them, coming from the dancer as well as the PA system, or musicians.
The snake dance is an amazing show! Having a live animal in any performance has that extra ‘WOW’ factor and combining it with belly dance and you’re sure to have a hit!
The cane is fun and energetic and paired with a good Saiidi beat it just turns everything into ‘party-time’ plain and simple!
The candle-tray dance is delicate and thrilling, yet full of energy. The dancer performs with a tray of lit candles balanced over their head. It’ll have you at the edge of your seat!
Isis wings are full of drama and look fantastic in any environment (providing there’s enough space)! They make for a great talking point, even after the show is over!
