"The Best of Bellydance 2011" Competition at Pera Dance

On January 7 (please note the change from the original date of December 10), Pera Dance will play host to a rare treat in the metro Atlanta belly dance community: a belly dance competition!  I personally can't think of a similar event in recent memory.  There will be a grand prize of $200, plus gifts for the runners-up.  Doors open at 6:30, and the show starts at 7:00.

Performers of all belly dance styles and skill levels are welcome -- men as well as women.  In addition to their skills and ability, contestants will be judged on their costume choice and, importantly, cultural representation -- the dancer's ability to convey to the audience what genre he or she represents.  For fusion performances, the performer will be evaluated on how clearly the styles being fused are represented. So performers will need to be sure they do their homework!
