12th ANNUAL HAWAI‘I BELLY DANCE CONVENTION TO SHOWCASE MIDDLE EASTERN DANCE OCT. 13-17 Now in its 12th year, the 2016 Hawai‘i Belly Dance Convention will bring performers and teachers from near and far to Honolulu to share the beauty and drama of Middle Eastern dance October 13-17. “We’re so excited to announce the twelfth annual Hawai‘i Belly Dance Convention. This year our amazing instructors will be taking a deeper dive into the history and culture of belly dance,” said convention founder Malia Delapenia. “We hope you’ll join us this October with some of the best belly dancers in the world sharing their knowledge and passion with dancers and dance lovers alike.” This year’s featured visiting performers and instructors include tribal fusion belly dance pioneer Mira Betz, belly dance superstar and instructor Petite Jamilla, and pioneering male fusionist Frank Farinaro. In a new event for this year’s convention, enjoy Cultural Seminars followed by the Reflection performance review on Thursday, October 13 at the Honolulu Museum of Arts. Cultural seminars begin at 5:00 p.m. Following the seminars is an intimate session of performances and commentary, an opportunity for professional feedback from HBDC’s visiting instructors. Beginning at 7 p.m., dancers can participate in a question and answer session and get feedback on their own performances. The evening is open to the public. General admission is $15, with discounted admission for museum members and military. Dancers wishing to get reviewed must apply in advance. Forms are available on HawaiiBellyDanceConvention.com. On Friday, October 14, join us for the crowd favorite Shimmy Showcase Gala at the Honolulu Museum of Art’s Doris Duke Theatre (900 S. Beretania Street). The Shimmy Showcase is an opportunity for convention participants to see their teachers in action, and for everyone to appreciate the enchanting art of Middle Eastern dance. The two shows will be preceded by a no-host reception with special preview performances. “Essence” the 6 p.m. show, will be a family-friendly show that traces the once traditional movements of belly dance to its contemporary existence. “The Reveal” will continue the modern exploration with more edgy, sensual, fusion performances for an audience 18 years and older at 8 p.m. General tickets for each show begin at $30 with VIP available and discounted admission for museum members, military, or for those enjoying both shows. The Shimmy with Aloha Workshops, now in their ninth year, will be held at the Neal Blaisdell Center on Saturday and Sunday, October 15 and 16. Workshop teachers bring decades of experience to each workshop, and offerings will be available for belly dancers at all levels of experience. Individual workshops are $35-$75. A free Beginners of Belly Dance class will be taught on Sunday from 2:00-2:40 p.m. All ages and levels of experience are welcome and encouraged to share in the love of the art. Just outside the Shimmy with Aloha Workshops at the Neal Blaisdell Center, a marketplace will be set up with belly dance costumes, dance wear, and other Middle Eastern artisans from around the world. Many of these products are not available locally most of the year. The Middle Eastern Marketplace will be open to the public from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. Following the Sunday workshops, the hotly anticipated official HBDC VIP After Party will be held at an exciting location to be announced soon. The final day of this year’s HBDC, Monday, October 17 will begin with a day of outdoor adventures with friends old and new. Attendees can save over $120 and gain admission to all HBDC events with the Ku’uipo Package. The $480 pass includes access to the Cultural Seminar & Reflection, both Gala Shimmy Showcase, Shimmy with Aloha Workshops, and the HBDC VIP After Party.

REFLECTION Like a reflecting pool that mirrors the features of its subject, one of our greatest tools for learning and growth is feedback from our peers. As performers, we have an obligation to our audiences. As we grow as dancers our audiences come to expect more from us. Through meaningful collaboration, we can utilize our various skills and creative vision to build a stronger performance culture. Join us Thursday October 13th 2016 at the Honolulu Museum of Art’s Doris Duke Theater for an intimate night of performances and commentary. Space is limited to 10 performances (group & soloist). Selected performers will dance before a panel of world-renown performers. Reviews will be structured to guide the commentary and ensure all feedback is positive and constructive. Through written notes and a moderated verbal discussion, the panel will provide valuable feedback to help performers fine tune their piece for future audiences. All dancers are welcome to apply. This forum is open to the public. If you’re interested in submitting your performance please visit: http://goo.gl/forms/ksWY3WpmxP For more information visit: http://hawaiibellydanceconvention.com/
