2018 Healing Scholarships!
This year we will be giving away several partial and full Healing Scholarships to benefit dance sisters who have been severely effected by illness (mental or physical) either personally or within the immediate family, who could not attend 2018 Belly Dance Masters without the help of Scholarship. If we are able to negotiate for an additional Belly Dance Masters in 2019 in our home hotel, we will have a silent auction to carry forward the tradition into 2019. At this moment, we cannot schedule the auction or 2019 Belly Dance Masters.
Nominees will receive passes to all the shows and workshop passes as determined. Give the gift of hope and delight! Share this message and please share who you know that would benefit greatly. Nominations will be accepted until June 1, 2018 or until all the scholarship dollars are allocated whichever comes first. Transportation & housing are not included, though they could be if supported by a troupe or group choosing to come to Belly Dance Masters.
Please complete the online form below as soon as possible for immediate consideration.
"I believe that participating in dance events during my breast cancer treatment saved my sanity & ultimately my life. Of course my family was there for me. There is something to be said for healing through dance though. I remember feeling strength by just being in the room even when I could only sit there (unable to dance because of the chemotherapy, surgery and/or radiation side effects). Few people know about how my husband's pay cut, the resulting need to move and the hunt for a new job which ultimately led to our move cross country all occurred during my treatment. It meant the world to me when I was gifted a scholarship by my dance mentor for an intensive weekend in NY. It could not have come at a better time."

Aaliyah Jenny, our 2015 Stellar Pro Fusion Artist and a 2016 Belly Dance Masters Instructor, was one of the inspirations of this change, though there are many others who have dealt with incredible challenges. Please share this with those you know. We appreciate all support of this wonderful program and healing through dance and community!
