    Dominican Republic Will Host the Most Awaited Belly Dance Festival of the Caribbean
    Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, 04/15/2014

    The second installment of the Oriental Dance Festival “Maktub”, one of the most promising events in the Caribbean this year, will be held on May 9 - 11, 2014.  The event will bring together national and international artists with the common intention of promoting cultural exchange and the enrichment of the belly dance community of the Dominican Republic. It will create opportunities for our artists, and a bridge between our country and the foreign institutions related to this art.

    “Maktub” was devised in 2011 by renowned teacher of oriental dance Lorelei Acosta, who in previous years won two world competitions in Egypt, the cradle of belly dance, and the country where she teaches every year at the Ahlan Wa Sahlan Festival, one of the most important festivals in the world.

    “We will have over 13 hours of workshops with 5 important teachers visiting from Hungary, Spain, and Argentina, as well as 3 international shows with them and other invited dancers from Japan, Spain, United States, Puerto Rico, Austria, Mexico, and the Dominican Republic. This will be the first time that many foreigners from various countries will come to perform and to study belly dance in our country”, said an excited Lorelei Acosta, prizewinner dancer and organizer of the event.

    Countries such as the United States, Chile, Argentina, Venezuela, Puerto Rico, Colombia, and Mexico, among others, have great festivals of this nature. This year the Dominican Republic joins this great group, bringing to the Caribbean, for the first time, the internationally acclaimed master of belly dance Mercedes Nieto from Hungary, Dorisha from Spain, and from Argentina, FadhilaNur, MatiasPirchi (the 2013 world champion of Arab folklore) and Mahyra Saad. They will perform in an international grand spectacle for the whole family, in the evening of May 10th, in the Great Hall of the Lebanese Club.

    This festival, whose first installment had massive support and excellent reviews, will take place this time with an international format in the Lebanese Syrian Palestinian Club, with the support of Pinturas Tropical, the Teruki Flower shop, the Ahlan Wa Sahlan Festival (Cairo) Maniquí Restaurant and Lounge, ALDA Magazine (Mexico), Daniel Acosta SRL, the Mercure Hotel, the French Hotel, the Nicolás de Ovando Hostel, Asterisco Creative Group, Yerry Batista Photography, Tumedio.net, Carlina Makeup Artist, Tía Rosa Boutique del Sabor, CXSY, 12 Bits Media Group, Anubis Temple, Sabrina Bellydancer, Luxus Design, Fashion Details by Carla Collado, and other Dominican and foreign institutions.
