Diamond Sky WEST DVD
Fantasy & Fusion, with Australian-infused Oriental dance


Saturday's spectacular WEST concert showcases innovative Fantasy and Fusion bellydance with a focus on creative new works and exciting cutting-edge solo and theatrical troupe performances.

Be mesmerized by the etheric and evocative 'Ghosts' troupe performance by Ma'isah, moved by the powerful lyrical quality of the Isadora Duncan inspired dance by Paola Blanton (Brazil) and modern Algerian fusion with Tamalyn Dallal (USA). Enjoy playful circus themed burlesque by Kylie Morrison and Kylea plus an array of stunning and creative fusion, tribal, fan veil and Isis wing performances.

The second bracket features Australian-infused Oriental and fusion bellydance, including Australia's dynamic Rose Ottaviano, Yamina's live BellySamba performance, Nanda and Na'lah's beautiful vintage Baladi ensemble and Belyssa's entertaining 'Persian Circus' tableau that will have you clapping - or dancing - along with the merriment!
