Arabesque : A Dance Journey
Presented by Amira Dance Productions, Arabesque: A Dance Journey explores the relationship between ballet and belly dance! Amira Joy Johnston is an Olympia belly dancer and breast cancer survivor. Each year she creates a show whose proceeds benefit the South Sound YMCA, a place where she found immense support during her battle with cancer. I am honored to be the featured dancer this year.

I will also be teaching a belly dance workshop earlier in the day. Baladi: Art & Soul is one of my newer workshop creations that brings together my love for earthy belly dance technique, the interesting history of the Egyptian baladi (dance), and captivating improvisational structure of the Cairo baladi. The baladi is truly the soul of belly dance. Come dance with me!
