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.email@example.com

Bellyanna Fundraiser: for My FEARLESS Fight Against Lyme!
The Dancers of the Delaware Drum and Dance Hafla are proud to support the efforst of Sarah of Phengo Photography and her fight against Lyme Disease. Sarah has been the photographer for several of our shows. She fights for herself and for others who have the disease.
The Fearless Goal:
‘First, our goal is to raise enough awareness and funds through this site & at our December 7 Fearless Fundraiser so we can apply for a 501(c)3 non-profit status in order to help others with this and other related illnesses not covered by insurance.’
3 ways to help
1. Donate to one of the performers at the Bellyanna show on Dec 15th
2. Donate via the Go Fund Me page for ‘My FEARLESS Fight Against Lyme!’ http://www.gofundme.com/fearless
3. Attend Sarah’s Benefit on Dec 7th at Arden http://fearless.brownpapertickets.com/
How the bellyanna works: All dancers pick a song between 3-5 minutes long and burn it on a CD. Each dancer WRAPS her music as a present. Then all pick a present like a pollyanna gift giving: and in 2014, WE ALLOW STEALING. It's improv with a twist.
How stealing works:
The person who agrees to dance first will have the most choice.
The person who dances last has the least choice.
We start picking with the last to dance. They pick a present and open it.
The next to last then either picks a present to open OR steals the music from the last dancer.
Repeat until we get to the first dancer.
Every dancer to pick can either take an opened music present or a new present.
If your music is stolen you can either take an opened music present or a new present, but you can't steal back what was just stolen.
