International and Canadian professional dance artists graced the stage for these high energy performances that were attended by all conference participants and the general public. The great caliber of performance was ensured by a selection process that invited artists to apply to perform. The final selection of Main Stage performers was made by a jury of professional bellydance artists from Toronto.
