This Weekend's Events

So what's happening in the metro Atlanta belly dance community this weekend?  Between World Belly Dance Day and Mother's Day, it will be a great weekend to celebrate your love of this art form and its power to not only honor women's bodies and spirits, but also to bring women together with a very special bond.

Shimmy Mob 2011
Saturday at 1:00, Shimmy Mob will occupy Atlantic Station for its second year.  This is a "flash mob" type of event involving dancers from throughout the metro area.  Lacy Perry of Belly Dance by Lacy and Beledi Boutique has been offering free classes in this year's choreography, and will be coordinating the performance.

Proceeds from participation fees will support local women’s and children’s shelters. Look for the dancers in matching T-shirts near California Pizza Kitchen.  Come out and celebrate National Belly Dance Day!

Sunday from 1:00 to 4:00, Nazeem Allayl Studios will host a mother-daughter event at its Peachtree Corners studio.  Bring your daughter or your mom and enjoy a special sale (including kid-sized costumes), a mini-workshop, performances, and more.

Happy National Belly Dance Day and happy Mother's Day from Yalla Y'all!
