This Weekend's Belly Dance Action!

Once again, the metro Atlanta belly dance world is full of things to see and do this weekend!

Saturday night, Taloolah Love presents "Arabian Nights" at Bart Webb Studios in Avondale Estates.  Now a star in the burlesque world, you may or may not know that Taloolah got her start as a belly dancer!  This event will feature fun belly dance workshops with the one and only Christy Anandaconda and a fabulous hookah lounge designed by Banat Almeh's own Monet Fort!  Plus tasty music with DJ Saute, henna, food, and who knows what other exotic delights.  Find out more and RSVP via the Facebook event here.

Sunday night, there are three events to choose from!

For some zesty fusion and theatrical dance, head over to Nicola's for the Atlanta Fusion Belly Dance Anniversary show.  Leena and her ladies will be celebrating their second successful year!  This show will feature performances by all the AFBD instructors, four student groups, and more.  You know you'll be thoroughly entertained by these multi-talented dancers.  Tickets are $20 in advance, $25 at the door.  Click here for more info and to order tickets.

Or if you're in the mood for something more tribal... more Turkish... go and see Awalim at Cafe Istanbul!  If you haven't seen Awalim in this beautiful environment (in my opinion, the prettiest setting for belly dance in town), you need to have this experience.  Lie back on the pillows, eat some of that amazing bread with their delicious mezza, and let Awalim take you to another world!  Reservations are strongly suggested.  Click here for more info.

Finally, Jechileah's Treasures presents a Night of Middle Eastern Dance at Tantra in Buckhead (next to Imperial Fez).  Galina, Jechilieah, and Suzanne will be performing starting at 7:00.  Reservations are recommended!
