ABA's January Theater Showcase


The Austin Bellydance Association organizes two bellydance shows every year at the theater of the Dougherty Arts Center. These bellydance shows offer the membership an opportunity to present a well-crafted piece on a well-appointed theater stage, to share their love of bellydance with their family and friends, and to bond with other members through music and dance.

What’s the theme of the show? 
As the name of the show indicates, this show aims to promote adding variety to bellydance performance through the use of props.  Some of the props you might expect to see in this show include; veil, wings, fan veil, voi (poi-veil), cane, sword, shamadan (with LED lights), tray, pot, combo (more than one of the previously listed props).

Are you an ABA member who's ready to perform in a theater setting with veil, wings, fan veil, voi, cane, sword, or other balancing items such as tray or pot?
