"On the evening of the event, al-Haggala (the name of the local professional female dancer) was traditionally summoned to participate in the dance with the male inhabitants of the community. She arrived in her ankle-length, colorful floral-designed Bedouin dress, revealing a tan-colored boot embroidered in multicolored designs. She was adorned with silver jewelry typical to the area, and her hair was plaited and piled on the crown of her head. Both her face and head were covered by a very thin, gauze-like veil."
