Since 2011, on World Bellydance Day (the second Saturday in May), teams of belly dancers around the world dance a Shimmy Mob, a belly dance flash mob held annualy to raise awareness of domestic abuse. For this cause, the Suburban Gypsies and Joyful Dance are teaming up as Shimmy Mob of Prince William County to benefit our local domestic violence resource center, ACTS of Prince William County. Join us as we mob the community all around Old Town Manassas to raise awareness for this important issue.

Belly Babes

Carousel Oceanfront Hotel & Condos 11700 Coastal Hwy, Ocean City

Introduce your children to Middle Eastern culture through Middle Eastern dance! In this class, children ages 6 and up* will learn a choreography inspired by Disney’s “Aladdin,” but set to a real Arabic children’s song called “New Moon.” Those attending both Saturday and Sunday may also perform the choreography with the class on Sunday, so be sure to bring something sparkly to wear on stage, or wear a solid color and borrow costume pieces from Miriam.  The children will have an opportunity to show what they learned on stage if we have a show on Sunday; otherwise they will perform in their class for their parents.
