In our previous newsletter we already announced our new Shimmy Shake Show at Corendon Orientalicious International Belly dance Festival on Friday 13 June from 19.00 - 20.00h in Theater de Meervaart. With dazzling performances of the funky TribAlways, new ATS choreography of Maya Acid Performance Troupe (image left), the upcoming talent from Amsterdam Orient Nightingale (image top) and the selected dancers from the Shimmy Shake Factor CO; Sara Horvat, Aziza’s Angels, Janneke Staat and Esther Bronwen van Aalst. We are proud to add Sulayca, Noor Bonenkamp, Jacqueline and Stephanie to the line up. It’s going to be an explosion of more than 11 fusion belly dance talents within one hour varying from Dark fusion, Hip-hop cross overs, Serbian Fusion Dance and many many more!
Tickets are now on sale via Theater de Meervaart.
The Next Level
Once again this year we will be organising the coaching series for semi and advanced dancers: The Next Level. For this level we select the dance act from the video clip that you will send us of the dance you want to improve. The participants will be chosen on the basis of motivation and what you hope to accomplish with this coaching, as well as the potential of the choreography. If you are chosen for coaching we will assign to you one or more coaches that we think will help your act and you as a dancer. Coached acts will be programmed in the Gala Show during the Shimmy Shake Festival in November!
Registration for the Next Level will start half August, so keep an eye on our website.
