WORLD BELLY DANCE DAY!!!
Every year on second saturday in may

Our mission is to unite the initiative of dancers around the world to celebrate the wonderful art of belly dance as a holiday on the second Saturday in May every year. We got inspired by the idea of holding an event that would serve as a reminder that belly dance is an ART form, a cultural event, a sport, and a social and family entertainment. It is also a wonderful chance to help those in need. This website is a tribute to a decade of World Belly Dance Day.
