The annual New York Theatrical Bellydance Conference - featuring daytime workshops and evening performances (as well as a pre-conference bellydance shopping tour!) - is July 6-10. Its two founding directors are Anasma and Ranya Renée, both accomplished dancers, choreographers and dance teachers. Anasma and Ranya stop by to give us an inside look at the conference and give us a feel for what's happening in this rapidly evolving dance movement. We also hear music by the ensembles that will play during the conference and sample some of the music that the dancers dance to - both traditional and modern.
