This past weekend I traveled to Somerset, NJ for Rakkasah Spring Caravan. This is a big east coast belly dance festival held twice a year. The highlight of Rakkasah is the variety of performances, which anyone can call in to try to get a spot during their dancer call in. The performances always feature a great array of dancers and professionals. This years featured dancers are Manhattan Tribal, Solstice, Brenna, Serena, Ebony, , Neon, and Irina. In addition to performances there is many fantastic vendors and food. Also Friday-Sunday there are workshops in the morning before the performances start. It is a nice schedule with workshops across the street at the hotel, performances all day at the Ukrainian Cultural Center, and then an after party at the hotel.
