Described as the American Idol of belly dance, Belly Dance Off is an educational touring talent show illuminating the secrets of dance improvisation in performance with live music. Touring the NW each year, Belly Dance Off takes place in three preliminary rounds, yielding three finalists in each category to compete in the annual Grand Championship for titles, trophies, ribbons, tiaras, cash, and other prizes. Dancing opens up to the audience at halftime, with a special prize for best shimmies!
As always, it is a spectacular interactive experience with lights, cameras, and lots of action! Through the feedback and voting process, the audience and dancers learn a great deal.
All ages are welcome. Guests will have the opportunity to purchase onsite concessions and beverages during the show, or access the next door Hale's Brewery for a full menu of fresh food, which service will deliver.
