The Carnival of Stars Festival is produced by Pepper Alexandria and Latifa at the Richmond Auditorium each year at the beginning of August. The stage at this facility is hard to beat. The wonderful lighting and the large stage make every dancer feel like a diva! Once again, Carl has done an amazing job catching the character of each dancer. This is page THREE of another lovely group of his photos. Check back for more soon! This year’s festival is just around the corner- August 6 & 7, 2011. Gilded Serpent will be there to witness and document this friendly event. See you there!

  • Live a DanceDivas’ Life! Interview with Jane Yee Shan Chung of Taiwan
    Then I saw the Suhaila technique workshop announced on her website and I just
    signed up without knowing exactly what her format is. I am the only person who did not learn Suhaila format before at that workshop. I was so naïve, I simply wanted to give it a try.
  • Off the Beaten Path
    Cory Zamora’s "Belly Dancing for Seniors" & "Learn the Art of Male Belly Dancing"

    However, I have a couple of issues with this DVD. One of my issues is that, other than stating the ages of the students (60, 63, 75) and making a fleeting mention of a few physical issues they have (problems with feet, back, etc.), there is not a great deal of material specific to senior dancers.
  • Hawaii Workshop
    Floor Work is a moving Yoga, and as in Yoga, one must let his/her body grow into more flexibility which develops with practice.

  • Is "Cabaret" a Dirty Word? Using the Terms Cabaret vs. Night Club
    So, is “cabaret” a dirty word? It depends on whose definition you want to use! In Arabic, the name “cabaret” is interpreted differently from what it is in English, leading to the confusion about nightclubs and cabarets. Here in the U.S., we think of a cabaret as a synonym for nightclub.
  • Rhythms of Oriental Dance, Starring Nesma and Khamis Henkesh
    Nesma and Khamis’s discussion of the complexity of Arabic music and dance is both appealing and easy to grasp.
  • Cairo’s Costume Disasters

  • The Pirate, the Psychic and the Mummies in the Basement, Malia’s Story Part 1
    So, at age 4, my world was good. I had a rich imagination sparked by images of Egyptians in the crawlspace and iron ore waiting to be turned into gold. I had a family that consisted of pirates, genies, fortune tellers, wanderers and minstrels. Most of all I had been captivated by the bejeweled beauty in the dancing tattoo. It was 1957 and I knew, like my Uncle Omar and great Aunt Katie, I would one day grow up to be someone who would follow a special calling. I decided, at age 4, that it was my destiny to become a Belly dancer!
  • Scott Wilson’s CD "Efendi"
    Scott’s quest is to make Mid-East music more accessible to American audiences..
  • Sausan’s First Egyptian Dance Seminar
    What would you think if you heard somebody say, “There are no isolations in Egyptian Belly dance"?
  • Sula, An Artisic Life by Monica
    Sula continued to study with Bert through the early 1970s, though by 1972 she called him “my ex-teacher and now equal partner”. Bert was extremely proud of Sula, as she was among the first students he trained who began teaching seriously.
  • Troupe Tabu goes to China!
    .It should be noted that somewhere between passing the audition and performing, it was announced
    that three out of four dancers in the group (not including myself) were pregnant.
