These are just a few of our favorite internet sites for additional Middle Eastern Dance information. I will be adding to this on regular basis.

If you have any sites which you would like us to consider for inclusion here, please send mail to julie@saharasilk.com  with the subject line links.

I have enormous respect for the contributions made by some of these folks to keep this beautiful art alive and presented in its pristine form.

I also express appreciation for the extensive amount of study and research involved in the compilation of information presented at some of these sites.
