The year has started and so has the Talent Search where we look for new Fusion Belly dancers!! You sign up, present your work and receive feedback (if you want it) from our panel of experts or come and watch, or you can simply just dance even if you don’t want coaching or feedback. After the four Talent Search Dance Days the chosen 12 dance acts will be coached and perform their improved work at the Talent Carnival in June, a gorgeous day that is not to be missed.
