Bellydance, Bollywood and more

It first became popular in Australia in the 1970s and continues to be popular today as women everywhere enjoy the colour, music and movement of the different styles. The annual Free Spirit Fusion Festival on 18 October offers a day of celebration and learning sure to appeal to experienced dancers and those who have always wanted to learn more.
