Fire Dance at Cairo Cafe


Since last night slowed down quite a bit by 11:30 I decided to do my fire tray dance which I've not done in a year!!!! It went well..... meaning no one was harmed in any way and no one had to

call the fire dept!!!!! I made up this little "fire dance" costume by cutting up a $5 thrift store dress. I've always hated wearing the beaded bra and belt for this dance... so now I don't have too....
and I danced to some different music... I used the same music for 9 years for my fire dance!!! I couldn't find anything else I liked for it....
So it was exciting... and since there were no disasters I need to start doing it more often. Its typically a good show piece for the audience...
I mean I really do bore myself by just coming out and "bellydancing"
all night... its nice to mix up the show with fire, sword and even the dreadful Shamadan ... more on that crazy prop dance another time.

I love the green outfit. The top is very striking.You said you used Burda for the skirt but what about the top, is that your own design, or did you use a pattern? BTW, the only fire dances at my house are when flames shoot out of my oven!I seem to do that a lot!
