Style File Rides Again

My booklet, Style File, has been out of print for some time.  Today, I’m pleased to announce that I’ve got it for sale on Etsy as a digital download.  Originally published in 2002 to serve as a field guide for belly dance costumes.  At the time, I was teaching two dance classes a week, and I wanted to put together a handy 48-page booklet that a novice dancer could take to an event to help them identify different styles of belly dance costuming.  My goal was to create a small, portable book, that would serve as a jumping off point for discussions about costuming with my fellow belly dance enthusiasts.

The original Style File would also serve as a jumping off point for discussions about costuming and researching ethnographic styles.  Over the last 20 years, I’ve used this handy little book as a text for several different workshops about belly dance costuming and style.  I have included a glossary of terms and a small reading list to get a student started with their own personal research.

To facilitate printing, we reformatted the booklet into an 8.5″ by 11″ inch size. This is also easily adjusted to an A4 size in your printer settings.  Many of my students have enjoyed using it as a coloring book, and now you can print out images that interest you to experiment with color, pattern, and texture.  It is also conveniently sized to punch and store in a standard 3-ring binder to use for future reference.

Although there have been many stylistic changes from year to year and season to season, Style File presents the core ideas and main styles that continue to dominate the costuming of belly dance.

Happy Costuming & Delicious Dance!
