A Word About The Show

“We wanted to create a new atmosphere  for the dancers in the local community, a chance to show family and friends and dance supporters what each dancer enjoys about bellydance, what she’s working on, or what she wants to express creatively.

We see lots of opportunities for dancers to perform in groups, or with performance companies, but rarely do we get a chance to see a dancer perform a solo piece that is uniquely her own; a piece that is not catered to fit a theme of a show, or to fill a request from a client, a piece where she can be seen as an individual and not as a member of Troupe-X.  This is why we’re nixing the mention of affiliations, and allowing dancers from any troupe, school, or group to present a piece under her own name, as her own individual artist.

We’ve also encouraged dancers to collaborate with women who they usually would not have the opportunity to work with. Maybe it’s a collective effort of two dancers from competing troupes? Maybe it’s a duet by two solo performers? Maybe it’s an opportunity for students to perform with their mentor or teacher?  I’m very excited by the response and enthusiasm from the dancers, and the submissions that have come in already tells me that it’s going to be an evening to be remembered.”
