Belly Dance Convention & Festival

2nd Annual Belly Dance Convention & Festival at Mosaique Studio
Sunday November 20 , 2016
11am – 5pm
“Myths, Legends & Mysteries: Stories to Inspire and Inform Your Dance”convention-2016

The Belly Dance Convention and Festival presented by Mosaique studio is an event designed to bring the dance community and those interested in Middle Eastern dance, together.

Each year we will select a theme to explore with the goal of educating dancers and the public on the various cultural and historical elements that shape the art of traditional, modern and fusion belly dance. The event features performances and lecture presentations, rather than movement classes, giving dancers of all abilities the opportunity to learn about dance, as well as process information in a different way.

This year’s theme, “Myths, Legends & Mysteries: Stories to Inspire and Inform Your Dance,”  highlights researched stories from cultural traditions and ancient civilizations with application in theatrical belly dance performances.
