More than 100 bellydancers will put on a performance at Artisphere (1101 Wilson Blvd) this week.

The D.C. area belly dance studio Sahara Dance is putting on a show at Artisphere on Saturday, Aug. 18 from 6:00 to 10:00 p.m. Entitled “Carnival,” the show is billed as “Mardi Gras meets Middle Eastern moulid,” and will feature dance performances; variety talents; live music; games, prizes and raffles; beer, wine and festival food; henna tattoos; and tarot card and palm readings.

More than 100 bellydancers from around the D.C. area will participate in the performances. The event will also feature a special performance by Mohamed El Sayed, a noted Egyptian dancer and musician.

Tickets to the event are $20.

    *yawn*

    I’m predicting that tickets to this event will not be sold out. But if Trev would offer to host the suitcase pregame at the Bang Brah VIP tent it might have a positive impact on attendance.

      Show was packed–I bet Artisphere made more on their beer and wine bar that night than they have in a while. I hope they book more shows like that and make the venue a success!

    Hey, how about a home contractors expo at the Artisphere? Give the contractors who exhibited at the County Fair another chance to entertain John and Jane Homeowner.

      So, what’s the deal with the home contractor theme? I didn’t go to the Fair.

    100+ bellydancers?
    Normally the Artisphere hosts belly-achers, but they have moved on to the streetcar now, so the Artisphere has to have something to replace them.

    STOP
    STOP
    STOP all the dancing
    Give me time to breathe!

    We love the belly dancers and I think it is a good idea at Artisphere as performance art appropriate. Lets all dance now !

    What colossal WASTE of taxpayer dollars, as Oblunder goes so does Arlington. NO FISCAL RESPONSIBILITY
