This time, we are going on location to the beautiful REBELCAFE & KAVA BAR on Route 202 in Pelham, MA. 413-992-6069 where we are now looking for the 20 best Belly-dancers in New England to come show off their moves, win some great prizes and appear in a VIDEO!

On Sunday, July 10th beginning at 11AM we want you to enter our next  Belly-Dance-Off.  This contest is open to ALL.  Beginners and Experienced dancers as well.

Some of the Prizes awarded will be:


From 11AM – 12 Noon we will have OPEN STAGE HOUR.  Any and all dancers are welcome to participate. If you don’t plan to compete in the belly dance off, but you’d like to perform, pre-register for Open Stage Hour! Limit 10 Open Stage Performers. Pre-register today!

Prizes may be awarded during the Open Stage Hour so come early and join in the FUN!  (Pre-registration is required as space is limited) $10 registration fee for Open Stage Hour participants.

VIDEO of Open Stage Hour, as well as the Belly Dance Off on DVD is available for pre-sale. (Pre-order your DVD when registering for this event)

Then, starting at 12 Noon, 20 Contestants will be competing for the Grand Prize, which will be their winning belly-dance, filmed in a professional short video production, on your choice of DVD or Blu-ray disc. ($1,500 VALUE)

If you have always said…”Yeah, I can do that” when you see a belly-dancer, then this is your chance to prove it!

20 Contestants will each dance to the same songs, chosen by Diaz Digital Discoveries, just to make things equal and the winners will be chosen by Diaz Digital Discoveries’ judges. There will be a total of 3 Rounds…each contestant will have 60 seconds to dance in round one and 120 seconds to dance in round two. Then there will be eliminations. A final song for the top 3 will be played and they must dance again for180 seconds to determine the winner and two runners up.

Grand Prize Winner will receive a Professional Video Production of their winning belly dance routine on DVD or Blu-ray disc.($1,500 VALUE)

First Runner Up will receive a Professional Portfolio Photo Shoot ($500 Value)

Second Runner Up will receive FREE ADMISSION to the upcoming Wendy Bonaventura Belly Dance Workshop on July 17th.

All Contestants will draw a number out of a box (from 1-20) to determine what order they will dance in. Because the dancer who picks the number 20 slot will have the most difficult time being original in their performance, during the second round, all numbers will be reversed. So, dancer number20 will be dancer number 1 in the second round. Dancer number 19 will be number 2 …and so on.

There will be only non-belly dancers judging in order to keep things fair. There will also be a People’s Choice Award, with a SECRET prize awarded to the winner.  Bring your friends and have them vote for you!

Diaz Digital Discoveries judges will determine who the ultimate contest winners will be, with the exception of People’s Choice Award, which will be chosen by audience participation. All DDD judges decisions will be final.

All Belly Dancers may be judged on all the following:

1. Posture
2. Elegance
3. Personality
4. Synchronization (Dance matches Music)
5. Overall Appearance
6. Entertainment Factor (Fun Factor)

Break out your favorite/sexiest belly-dance outfit… or put together one of your own. Props are allowed so you may bring accessories to help enhance your look or routine. ONLY SWORDS DESIGNED SPECIFICALLY FOR DANCE will be allowed for the safety of all attending. If you do not have a specially designed sword for dance, please do not bring it.
