    If anyone is on flickr and interested, a new group on male male belly dancing, sparse at the moment but it could grow? ;

    So nice costuming in some of the photos, like the dancer with the tray's costume & the one with the zills.

    Dance is like glitter, it not only colours your life, it makes you sparkle, you find it everywhere and in everything and it's near impossible to get rid of. (unknown)

    Thanx for this - it has several dancers I've never seen or heard of before - and of course the legendary John Compton! I've added a link to it on my links page.

    Well the original caption says its a dancing girl. I do have a picture of an Egyptian khawal though. Have to see how I can upload it. He's got 2 long braids, hennad hands, a coined headdress, lots of necklaces over a long sleeved cotten shirt and a face as hard as rock candy. As Austin Powers would say, "That's a man baby"!

    I also have a picture of a Turkish kochec. Plaid shirt, fez pocket watch and a vest. Looks very similar to Tunisian male dancers outfit.
