Bellydance Intersections is a holistic perspective on dance and movement -- a seamless tapestry of belly dance, contemporary, folkloric, ballet, and more, featuring international oriental dance artist Gyongyi Stuber of Hungary with a rare intersection of talent, including The Allegro Dance Company (Portland, Oregon), Brittany Mattox & Coalescence Dance Company, Akahsia, Suzanna and Ava. In a world focused on difference and segmentation, Bellydance Intersections highlights crossover, collaboration, and unification. Circles, waves, spirals, vibrations, and punctuated movements transcend multiple styles, yielding fresh new inspirations.
“In my opinion, there aren't ‘new moves’ to belly dance or any kind of a dance, only new and creative ways to use the basics.” – Gyongyi Stuber, International Dance Artist of Hungary
