Lecture: Bellydance, Biases, and Back Story by Kalila Indivar

Bellydance is a beautiful art form where today women (and some men) gather to support each other, find creative outlets, and celebrate movement. But it comes with biases, baggage and a sordid back story. Join Kalila Indivar as she takes us on a journey traversing the history of bellydance in the United States, exploring where the form has brought us, and where it may lead us tomorrow.

The lecture will be followed by a bellydance performance featuring regional artists practicing a variety of styles including: Egyptian, Cabaret, American Tribal Style® and Fusion. The performance will feature: Antares Tribal, Med City Ensemble, Crystal Phoenix, Kalila Indivar.
