Shimmy Shake Festival - Urban Tribes Night
Call to all Fusion Belly dance schools!
Sign up your students for a performance at the Urban Tribes Night
The Urban Tribes Night is a show case of talented students of urban fusion belly dance schools and the six most talented dancers from the Shimmy Shake Factor CO, the talent development program for Dutch new fusion dance talents. Last year we proudly showed the wonderful students of Tjarda, Nargis, Nadiya Natali, Maya Acid, Pretima Ke Dewashrie and Showteam Kismet.
Like last year teachers of Fusion Belly Dance schools can sign up their students for a performance during the Urban Tribes Night. A wonderful experience for students, where they can get stage experience, develop as performing dancers and meet a lot of other fusion belly dancers.
Sign up your students and let them shine at the Urban Tribes Night
Please send an email to Gail Pilgrim with further details of your school, fusion style and student performance.
We look forward to see the new talents of fusion belly dancers!
