Bellydance is my passion and I am the hostess of the panel Bellydance: The Hippest Dance of All Time. Bellydance has a reputation as the oldest dance form and it has a big presence in Con Culture. Come and learn how to have fun at a Con ~ Fantasy Bellydance style! Get new ideas for Cosplay from my personal collection of costumes and clothing from Egypt, Palestine and Iraq. You'll find new ways to sparkle and show some skin. Learn to make some noise with a shimmy lesson and get your picture taken with a bellydancer.!
This passion started in the 1970's, I loved watching I Dream of Jeannie reruns and the ISIS television show. About twenty years after those reruns made an impression on me, an Egyptian Style Bellydancer gave a presentation in my undergrad dance ethnology class. At that moment I vowed that someday I would shimmy! I've been teaching Bellydance at IUPUI Community Learning and own about 14 costumes from 3 different countries.
The most fun I've ever had with Bellydance was performing at UtopiaCon in Cleveland in 2012. I whipped up an Isis, Egyptian Fantasy StyIe, costume and my smile grew bigger and bigger every time my picture was taken! That's how I fell in love with Con Culture. Bellydance is so much work, that it's essential that it be fun! Come and have 45 minutes of fun that just might last a lifetime!
