  2. Congrats to all involved. As a performer I liked the lights panning the audience , made it less of a BLACK VOID. As an audience member I thought the decor was nice, the sound was good , the intros to the point with little down time between numbers. As always a wonderful opportunity for anyone interested in Belly Dance, and it’s many offshoot fusion styles, to strut their stuff. The atmosphere was relaxed and everyone seemed to be having a good time.
