A Bellydance Spectacular
Audiences are always enthralled to see the bright colours and sparkling crystals of the Tone Bellydancers! At the Spectacular, they can expect a theatrical experience showcasing Bellydance with swords, feather fans, canes, veils and the exceedingly popular Isis (butterfly) Wings. The main show is inspired by the Tale of Scheherazade and 1001 Nights…it takes the audience on an adventure that is exciting, heartbreaking, uplifting and intriguing; truly, it is a breathtaking experience.
While the Bellydance Spectacular’s main feature is the stage production, the audience will also be delighted as they participate in judging (or dancing) in the ‘Tournament of Bellies’! Created by Tone Bellydance, this is the 4th annual tournament which includes a ‘Shimmy Showdown’ and a ‘Battle of the Swords’. While the competition starts with a dozen competitors, only half make it through the first round…but there can only be one champion! The first-place winner takes home an impressive prize (including cash, a tiara, trophy and more)!
Emceed by the reigning Mrs. Canada Globe (who has agreed to wear her larger-than-life crown for the entire evening), this is the sparkly event of the year – and one you don’t want to miss!
