The 2007 Nebraska Belly Dance Spectacular has come and gone. While it didn’t go entirely perfectly (a couple blown fuses, misplaced music, a broken elevator – oh my!), it was still a well-organized and wonderful event. There was a good crowd for the Green Show during the day, and the day-time classes were well-attended. Even my mother took a couple of the classes! She attended Magdalene’s Belly Dance Basics class and Ashiya’s Greek Dancing class. I signed up for Calliste’s Gothic Belly Dance class and had a blast – she’s such a fun teacher. J I think a couple of the Divas will work on a Gothic number for the next hafla, so watch out! J
The Spotlight Show kicked off with the Diva Soma girls twirling their day-glo canes lit by black lights. My Fish – whack! No one got injured, so I’d call it a success. J This was followed up by a very cute number choreographed by Sapphire Phoenix and Pelagia to the James Brown/Hakim duet “Lela”. It was an incredible start to an amazing night of dancing – performers that followed included Basharaat, Whorlwinds, the Athenian and Aegean Dancers, Della and the Hathorian Dancers, Karavan of Dreams, and the women of Metamorphosis Studio.
Can’t wait till next year!
