I remember the first time I saw the Belly Dance Super Stars.
It was years ago at a small club in San Francisco. I’m pretty sure it was the first time that they toured. I was so excited. I had only been belly dancing a couple of years and had just been asked to join the local troupe and most of the troupe went to the city to watch the show. I had only attended hafla’s and festivals and had never watched a professional belly dance show and my jaw was on the floor the entire time.
Rachel Brice and the Desert Roses, Dondi MCing, amazing new fashion of Melo’s being showcased by the tribal stars and the local guest troupe that had been asked to perform, FatChanceBellyDance®, was the cherry on top. In the years that followed I went to as many of the Belly Dance Super Stars shows as I could. I bought the CD’s and DVD’s and followed the careers of some of the dancers as they became internationally famous.
Miles Copeland knows how to keep things fresh and new. While Belly Dance Super Stars still occasionally tours, Miles has now created Club BellyDance. It’s an event that is geared towards local clubs and venues showcasing local dancers for the first half of the show and the second half of the show is, you guessed it, Belly Dance Super Stars.
