This event is free and open to the public.
Summer Dance Festival will take place at the beautiful Viridian Event Center and will feature some of Utah’s top professional belly dancers including Shahravar, Shah Sitara, Dragomi, Amina, as well as featured artists Aziz, who brought belly dance to Utah over thirty years ago, and dance and movement therapist Melissa Walker. Both Aziz and Walker will teach workshops the weekend of the Festival (see website for more info).

Thus far, we have nearly two dozen nations represented, and featured artists will include Samba Fogo, Divya School of Dance, KUD Rastko, Grupo Folklorico Raices.
