AUGUST 18-20th, 2017
The Yellowstone Valley Belly Dance Festival is the heart and soul of Spiral Skies Belly Dance Troupe. As a group, we volunteer countless hours of hard work all year long to bring popular, professional dancers to Billings, host a gala showcase and provide abundant shopping opportunities. Spiral Skies’ ultimate goal is to create a full weekend celebrating our love of belly dance! Dancers from across the U.S. and Canada travel to attend this event, which is the largest festival in the region.
Spiral Skies Belly Dance is pleased to announce this year’s headliners:
WORKSHOPS: Aug. 18-20, dancers will attend workshops focusing on topics such as technique, musicality and fine tuning their skills as a dancer. This year's workshops will feature Moria Chappell, offering hours of instruction on Make-Up, Technique and Odissi Tribal Fusion Bellydance; And Silvia Salamanca, who will co-headline and offer instruction in her specialty of swords and Flamenco Fusion. (For workshop information, please visit our Shopping page.)
BELLYDANCE SHOW! 10th Annual Yellowstone Valley Bellydance Festival's Gala Showcase: 7 p.m., Saturday, Aug. 19, at Alberta Bair Theater: an evening of exquisite, innovative, and entertaining belly dance! Headliners Moria and Silvia, along with an awe-inspiring collection of regional dancers will showcase the various cultural styles, music, and costumes of belly dance in the "Bellydance Spectacular!" gala showcase.
This family-friendly showcase is an exciting one-night-only opportunity to enter the dazzling and glamourous world of belly dance! This gala show caps off the 10th Annual Yellowstone Valley Bellydance Festival hosted by Spiral Skies Bellydance.
PERFORMERS! CHECK THIS OUT! ---> 2017 is a special year for Spiral Skies Bellydance! This year we are celebrating the 10th Annual Yellowstone Valley Bellydance Festival and we are going all out. We are creating a routine that will highlight what we all have achieved in last 10 years as a community and what better way to do that than include those dancers in our festival finale piece!
We would be honored to have our Gala Showcase performer’s participate in an epic 12 minute finale piece to the amazing song, “Knights of Shame,” by AWOLNATION. This song is about following your own heartbeat, listening to what calls to your soul, and living life to its fullest.
All Gala Showcase performers are invited to produce and perform their own specifically assigned portions of the song. In addition, the last three to four minutes of the song will call for all dancers to come back to the stage and dance with Spiral Skies with veils (details of that choreography to follow.)
This is who we are: a community of dancers celebrating 10 years of coming together and honoring this beautiful art form we all love.
If you are planning on attending and performing in the 10th Annual Yellowstone Valley Bellydance Festival, please consider joining us again, onstage for a grand and epic finale. We would be privileged and delighted to have you!
"Dance baby, dance, like the world is ending."
