About Our Products
We strive to make simple, valuable and inexpensive products for you to enjoy. These products are hand assembled by dancers and often will employ recycled products when possible. The products are sold in the studio and at vending booths at street faires and festivals where we can also demonstrate our dance art. Some products maybe available on- line eventually, but most for the moment will be available in person or by phone and in limited seasonal rotation. The creativity behind the making of the product is a part of the goal, rather than mass fabrication. Part of the product’s value is in their informational aspects, further explained on this website. This is to inform and enlighten us all in regards to the quality of our living.

About Our Service
The dancers collectively known as The Neighborhood Temple Priestesses wish to fill a charitable niche by hosting meaningful social occasions for women in need. These may be baby showers, wedding showers, healing times, wakes, ground braking events or wherever the ritual and beauty of belly dance is appropriate. They strive to lend support to organizations like Code Pink Women for Peace, Battered Women’s and Homeless Shelters, Senior Centers, and Children’s Hospitals.

About The Dancers
Our NEW dancer auxiliary group is called, The Neighborhood Temple Priestesses. Right now it’s in the first stages here in Seattle, but eventually there’s a dream of branching out all over the world.
Our mission is to demonstrate to the greater community, the exceptional rewards belly dance has for women of all ages, sizes and backgrounds. To counter the stereotypic images that sometimes prevail by the unacquainted.

It is important to realize that we, as American women, are free to engage in physically expressive arts like ice skating, ballet, gymnastics, tango, hula and belly dance. We have come to understand belly dance as a positive sisterhood that comes from ancient archetypal foundation. It is a deeply expressive art form that originates from things directly feminine; birth, belly, breasts, hips, expressive eyes and soft hands. It is soul candy rather than just fleshy sensual delight. The form serves us throughout all the stages of our lives; girls, maidens, mothers, career women, mature women and wise seniors. It builds self esteem by connecting women to their bodies, their rhythms and the environment that surrounds them. It gives them access to independent self expression and creativity. It keeps the body fit. At the same time it engages the mind through costuming and dance design and feeds the spirit by way of breath work, cathartic exertion, spinning, ritual and devoted practice. In this way it is never boring.

The Neighborhood Temple Priestesses are not about any “one” style of belly dance but support belly dance in all its artistic diversity. The priestesses act as facilitators in community to mentor other women and demonstrate the power behind this ancient dance. They do not wish to compete with professional performance venues but fill a charitable niche by hosting meaningful social occasions for women in need; baby showers, wedding showers, healing times, wakes, ground braking events. They strive to lend support to organizations like Code Pink Women for Peace, Battered Women’s and Homeless Shelters, Senior Centers, and Children’s Hospitals.
