Bellydancing Photo Shoot

Join us to shoot colorful models bellydancing. Below are the details of the event, and as a GDP Digital Artist, you will attend to shoot the event.

The shoot location is is at the Jones B-Side (203 SW 2nd Ave)

NOTICE THE TIME IS AT 8:30 P.M.  The dancing is supposed to start at 9:00 p.m.  

GDP was asked to take photos of the bellydancers as well as Ishtar, the Vintage Bellydance Band.

This is what is advertised for the participants prior to the actual dancing.

Dance off the holiday stress with two fantastic workshops! Saturday January 4th at Hip Moves Fitness Studio, Gainesville FL.

12-2 pm: How To Dance With Live Music
Gain confidence performing with a live band! Melissa Murphey and Nina Amaya will demonstrate how to channel dancer and musician energy into a great performance. We will cover how to practice for live music, communication with the band, choosing your songs, how to enter and exit as a pro, responding to live music in the moment, the taksim, and improvisation skills. Perform in class to a short live 3 part set, and get your improvisation on! Relax and enjoy your performance with Ishtar, Pittsburgh's vintage bellydance band!

2:30-4:30 pm: How To Play Middle Eastern Music On Any Instrument
The members of Ishtar will teach you to play fun bellydance songs that you can play for your local bellydance scene! All instruments are welcome to participate. Sheet music will be available to borrow and to purchase. Darbuka/doumbek players are encouraged to learn the traditional drum rhythms that accompany the songs. Visit for advance copies of sheet music. Email [masked] for any requests to learn a specific song.

    Great to meet you all at Jones B-side last weekend. Yasuo my wife would like to get a full size copy of your B&W of her from that event. It can be in TIFF, DNG, RAW or JPG as I have the Adobe software to manage all those formats. Her dress was the Orange one with Gauntlets and gold accents in frame number 2 of 23 on the uploads page.
