The Rakkasah Festival


Today I attended a festival that
celebrated the art of Belly Dancing.


I love the beauty of it all.
From the costumes to the music
to the dancing and especially
the women who participated.
What a sisterhood!


There were solo artists and group acts.


Many of the performances were
the traditional cabaret style that
I was familiar with but there were
also some very interesting tribal dances.


I think the term belly dancing may
be misleading, I thought the hips
were the main body part that moved.


And the shopportunity was fun too.
