Belly Dance “Prop-tacular” at Figment NYC 2011

Belly Dance Prop-tacular at FIGMENT NYC 2011

I will be performing for the second year in a row at the fabulous Figment Festival on June 10 & 12 on Governors Island.

Part of what makes Figment so great is that it’s about audience interaction. In addition to getting people up and dancing, I’ve added a new twist to this year’s show. Next to the stage I’ll have a display board with a QR code for each of the props I’ll be demonstrating during the show. When audience members scan the code with their smartphone, they’ll be taken to a blog entry about each prop. I’ll be adding the entries over the course of May and early June. Need a QR scanner? Check out your mobile phone’s app store for options…I like Qrafter for the iPhone.

About the show:
Shows are at the Colonels Stage on 1:30 pm on Friday, June 10 and at 12:00 pm on Sunday, June 12.

At last year’s FIGMENT, Najla took audience members on a tour of Egypt with her show and lesson “Belly Dance on the Island.” This year she pumps up the drama with a Belly Dance “Prop-tacular,” where audience members will be delighted and mesmerized by dances with wings, veils, swords, canes and candles. Audience members will be invited on stage during the show to participate, and will learn dance moves after the stage show.
