"Belly Buttons": 'cuz we're right in the middle

Our chapter serves the Worcester area and points north, south, east and west.

Who we are

Hi! We're the Middle Mass chapter of the NBDA - a fine group of fabulous, diverse dancers. Our interests and abilities range from the hobbyist to the professional. We have all sorts of different belly dance styles represented: cabaret, American tribal, goth and gypsy, to name a few. And some of us just defy description; therein lies our strength! We encourage and support all kinds of creative expression.

What we do

We pool our resources to create performance opportunities and support one another in individual dance projects. Stay tuned for information about our 3rd annual NBDA member showcase, to be held in June of 2008. As our chapter grows, we will be incorporating more dance activities.

Our goals for the future

We're looking to partner with other chapters to bring in headlining dancers and musicians to teach workshops and to perform. We'd also like to work with the local community on projects such as art festivals, fundraisers, wellness events. The sky's the limit!
