Calling all dancers, vendors and Musicians,
We are proud to announce the 4th annual Art of the Belly Dance Festival. Our event is hosted in Ocean City Maryland and the Mid-Atlantic Area. We are super excited! To show our love and appreciation of the belly dance community we would like to share some extra special news!! We have added an extra day. We are introducing not 1 but 2 intensives beginning on Thursday, March 20, 2014. Our Intensive instructors include the phenomenal Olivia Kissel and the one and only Princess Farhana. Yes, you read that right. A full day intensive and we will feed you lunch!!! If that isn't enough to make you drool maybe studying with Mira Betz will!!
Art of the Belly Dance is an all inclusive belly dance festival and our mission is to continue to create a family of dancers who can appreciate each other for their differences and similarities.
We love it when you take classes to support our instructors and the festival. Without the support of the community we could not bring this fabulous event to you. We take pride in selecting professional instructors from all styles of belly dance who are at the top of their field to offer you an opportunity to study with the best to improve your skills and encourage more innovative thinking.
We accept applications from all levels of bellydance to give members of the community a chance to perform in front of the most supportive audience, in our opinion, the world!! This event is more than your typical festival, convention or gathering of any sort. Art of the Belly is HOME. It’s the perfect haven for those who attend because it is on the Ocean located at the exquisite Carousel Hotel and it is filled with so much love and support!!! It’s all about the belly dance community and what we can bring to you.
There are over 30 vendors in our Vendor Village who are artisans with unique items along with traditional style bellydance vendors who will make your shopping experience a delightful one here at Art of the Belly. We also have a henna artist, massage therapist and soon a manicurist to give you the pampering you deserve. You are sure to find something new in the variety every time you return to the Vendor Village.
Our after parties have become those of campfire stories. It features our house band, Ishtar they have over a 60 song repertoire, and our original signature drink that you will not find at any other event, the Zaghareeta! The second drink is something new and delicious every year. In the past there was the Shimmylicious, and last year the Headslide. We do serious research and development to find the right blend to make our dancers happy. Please join us in our merriment.
We just love our attendees and look forward to seeing our old friends and making new ones! Just because the event is in March don’t let that fool you. Art of the Belly Dance Festival is what’s hot on the beach!!!
