- Classic Nightclub and Restaurant Entertaining – 3/5/7 Part Stage Routines
During the development of belly dance in the US, the multi-part shows common in the Middle East took on a distinct set of sections to create the American Orientale style full show. In this workshop, we will review each part of the standard sets and variations for performing from 10-30 minute shows for American, Greek, Egyptian, and Turkish audiences at US based clubs and restaurants.
