Belly Dance Tip: Why Wear a Cover-Up at a Show?


By Saqra




Why wear a cover-up at a show?

I could go into this one extensively (and have) but I'm just going to pick out one reason for today:

Because not wearing a cover-up is distracting for others in the room, and therefore rude to any other performers. This is true regardless of whether the other performer is another dancer, a band, or a clown twisting balloons. Rude.

There are other reasons, but this one reason is reason enough.

Your mileage won't vary on this.
