Join a group of local people who are passionate about belly dance -  professional belly dancers, students, teachers, drummers, musicians and friends in Maryland and surrounding areas! Meet fellow Bellydancers near you! Come to a local Bellydancing Meetup to share the joy of belly dancing (Raqs Sharqi or Dance Oriental if you prefer). Our calendar is the best feature- see where classes are, post your own events? fill out the polls to help teachers plan. We welcome all styles of belly dance, from authentic folkloric through tribal fusion. Musicians welcome, too! If you are looking for belly dance classes, you'll find them here on our calendar, or ask on our message board.

Come out and meet a huge group of bellydancers at monthly shows: The All Seasons Hafla in Baltimore is a great place to meet local teachers and students.  Many dancers perform many styles- don't miss it! Check out any of the multi-dancer shows. And the third Sunday of the month, there's the Fez Tones Hafla featuring a live band at the New Deal Cafe in Greenbelt, MD. The first half of the show features a prominent local dancer as headliner, plus guest dancers in a variety of styles. The second half of the show is all open dancing, so grab a hip scarf and join the other dancers! Check the calendar for details on these shows.
