    Calling all Orlando FL dancers

    I have access to a pretty cool venue located in Orlando called the Cameo. Plenty of parking, full bar, green room area for dancers, great sound system, room for vendors. It's currently used as an art hall and they have concerts and poetry readings over the weekend.

    Problem is, I don't live in Orlando. However, I will be there from Nov 9th-15th. Are there any dancers that are willing/wanting to help me put on a hafla show during that time frame? Is there enough interest to even throw a hafla around that time? Let me kn ow!

    Re: Calling all Orlando FL dancers

    This sounds interesting. I'm in the process of applying to jobs--desperately need one!--but I'd be happy to help out however I can.

    Have you checked out the venue already? I don't think it would be very difficult to find bellydancers to come and have a good time. And, personally, I think it's a good time because it's right before the rush of the holidays AND after Halloween.

    Re: Calling all Orlando FL dancers

    Yes, I visited the venue last weekend. Very artsty with exposed brick walls, and beam ceilings. Art work all over the room. Very cool vibe. It needed a hafla there :)

    Save the Date: Harvest Hafla Belly Dance Show Friday November 13th. Downtown Orlando at the Cameo : The Cameo Theatre

    I'll have more information about times, price and where to send performers request by next week. I have to make sure Hiptastic! runs first :)

    Thanks for your help everyone! I will definitely need you all to help spread the word. Hope we can make this a great pre-holiday de stress party before the holiday stress hits in full force!

    If you want to reach out to more people, not just Central Floridians, you could post the event on: Belly Dance Florida. And, of course, there are also other event listings around here BDers subscribe to. Just holler and I'll invite my peeps.

    nijala, if you could send me some pics you might want to put in a flyer ASAP because given that this hafla in october i told you about has already started advertising, it would probably be a good idea to get on this ASAP as well to ensure people will come :)

    or maybe that's my Type A personality showing because it is still september...,r:;

    lol

    Re: Calling all Orlando FL dancers

    Alright, hold the press... I just heard from the venue, and apparently, there was an event already in the books for Friday the 13th it just didn't make it to the online calendar yet. SO, they are offering a different day. Meaning weekday. Sadness. I dont know if it is worth doing a weekday hafla. We have them in Chicago...but...we're not in Chicago. Im not sure what I think about the whole thing now. Im traveling to Shimmy Tecumseh, MI this weekend. Let me sleep on it and get back to everyone. Input and opinions are much appreciated!

    Re: Calling all Orlando FL dancers

    Thursday might work. I'd first go with Saturday or Sunday. It's not completely out of the question to have events during the week. People might not stay past 10pm, though. Every now and then I go to music events on Monday nights--drum and bass, totally different crowd--and there are ppl out in downtown until 2pm. For the most part, it's usually dead at night.

    for a hafla, i personally would go any night of the week ,r:; hehe but that's just me
    but yah a thursday might work. but saturday or even a sunday would be a better choice and people probably won't stay out past 10 pm if it's a thursday or sunday.

    Re: Calling all Orlando FL dancers

    Ok, I am back from MI :) Saturday was never offered because it was already booked. Sunday I leave back for Chicago. If Thursday is an option, I can inquire. I do not think it will be a problem. We can make sure it doesn't go too late. Most haflas should only take about 3 hours anyway. So if we started the event around 6 or 7, we have it end by 10pm, plenty of time for a party and people can still get to bed in time for work and school on Friday.. yes?

    Mayliz-
    I didn't get your email at my gmail account. Could you send it again please? I just want to make sure I have contact info from you. But I have you down as a performer.
    Yes please do help me spread the word. We are in the books for Nov 12th. Should be a really fun de-stress before the holiday crunch. If we have a really good time, then we can do it again in the new year!!
    I'll work on a flyer next week. I have to make sure Hiptastic! Bellydance festival gets launched and under way round these parts this weekend!
