How Do I Get Into Bay Area Belly?
Except for invited dancers, dance spots are on a first come first served basis. If you get a dance spot you will be given a time for your performance. Troupes are allotted up to 10 minutes. Soloists are allotted up to 5 minutes. Please do not go over your allotted time.

Live Music
There is a limited amount of live music dance spots. If you have a live music dance spot – you will be given the contact person for the band so you can let them know your choice of music from their repertoire.

This is a great opportunity for local Bay Area dancers to come together and celebrate the art of Belly Dance. Use this time to connect or reconnect with the Belly Dance community. Learn and discover the different local resources for our craft including merchants and teachers, etc. A networking table is available.

There are as many different styles of Belly Dance as there are dancers. Come and be inspired – celebrate the differences in our expression of the dance or just have fun with your dance friends for an afternoon.

Confirmed dancers are on the Dancer Schedule.

Dancer Donation $5.00

Why A Donation?
This minimal donation price covers some rental for the venue, and expenses including musicians and sound tech. This venue is not large enough to house many vendors, as in very large festivals, so it is greatly appreciated when dancers can donate this small sum.
