Information from the first in 2012 here:
Drum and Dance Haflas will feature a headlining dancer, who is an area pro. There will also be 5-6 guest dancers, some who are professional restaurant dancers and some who are not, but all have experience in Bellydance. Both traditional Middle Eastern styles as well as Tribal, Tribal Fusion, and Cabaret Fusion will be performed. There will also be time for open dance and drum, so bring your hip scarves, drums, and dancing feet.
Performances by other dance forms and musicians also welcome. Please send the information in the application to Lorelei.firstname.lastname@example.org
