Bridge Street Belly Dance Returns to Catskill [Berkshire on Stage]
A thrilling, empowering, and spiritual experience awaits audiences on Saturday evening June 16th when Catskill’s Bridge Street Theatre hosts its 2nd Annual performance of “Bridge Street Belly Dance”. Organized, as was last year’s sold-out event, by Francesca Avani, the evening will feature performances by a dazzling array of artists from all over New York, New Jersey, California, Massachusetts, and New Hampshire in a kaleidoscopic display of the art of Tribal Fusion Belly Dance. Based in ancient traditions, Tribal Fusion is a vital, growing, evolving art form, being presented in Catskill by some of its finest and most accomplished practitioners.
Tribal Fusion is a modern Western form of belly dance which was created by fusing American Tribal Style belly dance and American Cabaret belly dance. Artists frequently incorporate elements from Popping, Hip Hop, ‘Egyptian’ or ‘Cabaret’ belly dance, as well as movement principles from traditional forms such as Flamenco, Kathak, Odissi, and other folkloric and classical dance styles.
Participating in this literal Belly Dance summit will be Lauren Robbiani, Rose Calavera, Danielle Hutton and the White Rose Collective, Makeda, Francesca Avani, Brenna Crowley, Serena Spears, Gerudo Vagrants, Cherish, Yvonne Michelle, Jaylee, Beast Coast, and The Lunachix.
