Saturday Gala Show

Love is a dream|Love is a nightmare

Please fill out the form below letting us know some information about you and the piece you would like to contribute to our show!  While we will try our best to get as many people into the show as possible, time is limited.  There are a few things that will help you move to the top of the list.  Please consider the following:

  • CHOOSE YOUR SIDE:  Is love a dream or a nightmare in your piece?  We encourage a strong vision of either a dream or a nightmare aspect of love. 

    • Don't forget: Love is more than just romantic love! ​

    • Create a storyline OR use a song about love.  Either will be considered!  

    • While the show will mostly be polarized to either Nightmare or Dream, there is room for more complicated ideals where the two can mix.  

    • People tend to lean to the nightmare side, which is awesome!  But if you are on the fence, then you may want to head to the dream side! 

  • STYLES:  While our teacher for this event is gothic fusion, ALL styles of belly dance are welcome and encouraged!  We love all the belly dancing and would love to have a well rounded show!

  • The first half of the show will be rated PG.  The second half of the show will be PG-13.  So you don't have to limit your song selection or subject matter.  Space is limited!

  • ATTENDANCE REQUIREMENTS:  Performers must be signed up for at least one workshop with Ariellah.  If you are chosen to perform, you will be given a 10% discount on your class fees and will not be required to purchase a ticket for the Love is a Dream Show. 

  • As dancers, we understand that your artistic vision or song choice may change as you develop your work for the show!  You are not permanently tied to what you put in the application, but please keep us updated on changes so we can properly assess where your number should go in the show.  (See hard deadlines below.)
