Belly dancing is a colorful art form derived in part from near-eastern folk dances. The dancers and muscians, while skilled and talented, also have fun and reap healthy benefits from the non-impact execise.
The event web site provides information and links to many of the professional dance studios and workshops that were part of the festival, as well as the vendors that provided the elaborate outfits, accesories and instruments.
Meridian Band supplied live authentic music for the dancers.
