Would you like to perform? 

Performers of ALL styles, including students and groups from other schools, are welcome and encouraged to join us. And you don't have to be a belly dancer--musicians, dancers from other disciplines, fusion dancers, and performers with experimental belly dance works are welcome and encouraged!


Interested in performing? Contact Mirah at by December 3 to be added to the performers list. In your email, please provide:

*  Your name (and those of any other people in your act, if applicable, so we can have a performer list and also identify people who need to be in more than one piece.)

*  Performance name or name of your act (if different from above.)

*  Length of your piece (up to 5 min. is always fine. Between 5 and 7.5 min may be ok, but consult with Mirah first to ensure show time permits.)

*  Choreography credits (if applicable)

*  A very short description of what you plan to do (to help us lay out the show order for variety, etc.:-)

*  A phone number where we can reach if there are questions or issues.
