Rakkaasah, the biggest belly dance festival in the US, starts tomorrow, and for those of us lucky to be in the Bay Area, it is right in our backyard at the Richmond Auditorium.
There will be lots of belly dance related shopping and non-stop performances on two stages, many with live music. It's the perfect opportunity to get lost in the world of belly dance.
I have been invited to perform with the troupe El Ashab, pictured above. It will be my first time doing belly dance comedy (at least intentionally!). Details on that on the shows page. I am really looking forward to a fun day with friends.
If you go to Rakkasah, please tell me your favorite part of the festival in the comments!
Have a great Rakkasah weekend!
