The Down East Bellydance & Drum Fest
Event Dates and Times
Different Locations in New Bern
The goal of the Down East Bellydance & Drum Fest event is bring an awareness of the beauty of bellydance and bellydance music. I also hope to enrich the local community by exposing them to a variety of styles of bellydance and offer them an opportunity to see live performances, take classes with world renowned instructors and purchase bellydance related wares that can help them in their journey to discovering the bellydancer inside of them.
I am an NC native and I want to be a proactive member of my community and I care deeply about this area; this is my home. I hope to share this beautiful art form with the community and instill an appreciation for world culture through appreciating world art.
The Down East Bellydance & Drum Fest is an annual event that is a 3 day festival that will be running from July 12th to the 14th at different locations in New Bern.
Friday night will have a African Drumming workshop w/ a Senegal native musician and performer followed shortly by live drumming and bellydance performances at the Mickey Milligan's. (Note that the Friday venue location was changed as the Broad St. Social Club recently closed its doors).
