2023 ABDA Rewind

Everyone seems to love getting their "rewind" posts from different apps telling us exactly how many times we listened to the Hadestown soundtrack while doing chores (I admit, maybe that's just me). In 2023, ABDA went back to basics while also adding some fun social elements. I hope you enjoyed it as much as we did.



March

We hosted our annual garage sale for used belly dance costumes, supplies, and accessories. Besides selling and shopping, members could sign up to perform in a more informal setting. We had a full house of vendors and some really great performances!

June

We hosted our summer social event with hours of shopping and dancing. Dancers of all styles and all skill levels got to perform. We screened Amaya's American Belly Dance Icons, which features several influential Texas icons. This follow-up to "American Belly Dance Legends" was released in January 2020. Our vendors included ABDA member-owned dance-related businesses selling custom jewelry, make-up, costumes, accessories, body stockings, veils, costume cover-ups, and more.

September

Our Fall for Bellydance event showcased our members, including teachers, students, and special guests. If you performed at the show, there's still time to get a video of your piece! All primary contacts should have received an email from ABDA VP Lily Tsai with purchase instructions. If you did not receive that info, please email vicepres@abda.org. You can also purchase pictures from Vance Strickland, show photographer, here.

We are excited to announce some new projects and significant updates, coming soon in 2024. We sincerely hope that you will continue to support us as we strive to provide you with an exceptional experience. You can renew your membership quickly and easily on our membership page.
