In This Episode

Today I have with me Nefertiti who, along with Soumaya, Amar Garcia, Tammy Jonson,  Khuzama, Cynthia, Hanane El , have agreed to put the Bellydancer’s Call to Action into this year’s bundle.

This event was organized in the summer of 2020 and is a must listen for all dancers who are working to unpack their privilege. It was a chance for Black and Brown dancers to share their lived experiences and knowledge around racism in our dance community.

Nefertiti goes into why now was the time to put this panel together, and what those of us with privilege can begin to do, right now, to be better.

Bellydancers Call to Action 

Our webinar approach will emphasize learning history; including what racism is, where it comes from, how it functions, why it persists, and it's impact within our community.


We aim to cultivate accountability within our community, create networks to protect, empower, and promote Black and Brown Bellydancer teachers and performers domestically and internationally. 


In our webinar, we will discuss power dynamics and how it is used to promote racial divisions within our dance community. 


Racism within the Bellydance community can be undone through effective anti-racist community grassroots organizing, discussions, and accountability. We believe that effective community and institutional change only happens when those who serve as its leaders understand the foundations of racism, racial microaggressions, and how they continually function as a barrier to the bellydance community.
