    I love the hailf circle veils the best, it fits my frame and I have greater control over them. As a dancer you have to build strong arms and upper back muscles and use your torso to help flip and swirl the veil.

    I agree with Gia. It all depends on the technique you are using to unveil. It can be a fine line at times, but the key word is class.

    I guess you're right - I've never actually seen it performed, but the descriptions I've read always sounded so... tacky.

    Take a look at the very topmost picture on my main page for an idea of one thing that can be done with two veils:

    For those just learning veil, do remember that there isn't a veil dancer on the planet who hasn't had tired arms and spent more time tangled in their veil(s) than on the outside of them! May I suggest this article on my site, "So You Want to be a Veil Dancer, Huh?":

    Oh, funny, Zorba. What a way to start my morning! I took to veils and they to me quite easily, perhaps because the day I picked up my first veil I had just spent six months putting up barbed wire fence across remarkably rugged terrain and had strength in my arms like you wouldn't believe. I could practice for hours and not get tired. My students are always astonished by the amount of strength and endurance it takes to use a veil- one woman said, "How can anything so floaty be so HEAVY after five minutes??"
    "Well, now that we have seen each other," said the unicorn " if you'll believe in me, I'll believe in you."

    Your article it's very interesting. I read it entirely!!! I found it very funny also...

    I have only practised the case in which the veil is wrapped around your head... and I hadn't thought of the other posibilitiesss, it's very important to be prepared for any complicated situation..

    Thanks for the adivice! Now I'm going to practise more and try to find how can I solve those cases in which you can get panic if you didn't practise :P
