Belly Revelations

Belly Revelations and its individual members are delighted to have been able to offer their talents to further the causes of justice and peace for every person. We were never great at posting photos and memoirs, so we trust that you'll trust that we've done a lot of pro bono work, for the love and joy of the dance, as well as to expand the joy and fun in the world. For example:

Basanti taught a Bollywood session at Speaking of Women's Health October 26, 2011 at the Raleigh Convention Center. In addition, Basanti & 5 of Kasha's students performed rockin' Bollywood for the entire assembly of women who came to hear the keynote address: "The Power of Perseverance."

Basanti & Qadria taught fitness-oriented classes at the August 13, 2011 Health Fair at Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church
Greek Orthodox Church Health Fair

Mara, Faedra, Jade & Luna joined Bastani & Qadria at
Speaking of Women's Health
at the
Raleigh Convention Center July 28, 2011.

It was a delightful opportunity to bring the joy, camaraderie,
and health aspects of bellydance to a new community
of women.






June 4, 2010, Bastani and Qadria performed for Wiley Elementary International Magnet School's International Night, part of a celebration of the wealth of international experiences of the Wiley community.

Here's Qadria and another member of the Board of Directors, along with two daughters of Board members. UUFR actively works in the community and the world to promote the inherent worth and dignity of Every Person.
