Samai Oriental Dance Company presents
Beyond Bellydance 5.0 - The Holiday Edition
New teachers, exciting topics, a bit of holiday cheer, with lots of fun and knowledge galore, the 5th edition promises to be bigger and better than ever before!
While we initially started Beyond Bellydance to provide dance enthusiasts with interesting insights into the world of Bellydance and Egyptian culture, today it has gone beyond that.
In a world filled with social media trends and instant gratification, we believe (and we’re sure you agree with us) that it is imperative to imbibe dancers, especially students, with an understanding of not just movements, but also cultural context and experiences that surrounds the world of Bellydance today.
We’re thrilled to announce that for this edition, we have partnered with 10 of the most prolific dancers in the world to bring 90 minutes of unfiltered discussion and a wealth of knowledge.
