Since 2012, our showcase had gone without a name.  Each year we tried to think of something that would encompass or describe what it is we were bringing to Traverse City.

Out of nowhere, one word appeared:  Ignite.  You may be wondering why this is the The Word.  Creativity, artistry, our dance community, and the cultivation of performance pieces, is our passion.  What we have wanted from the first moment we decided to make this event happen, is to spark that passion in others, instill it, and share it.

So, without further ado, we give you Ignite, the first of its name, and our 4th annual belly dance showcase.  Please join us, and let your heart be set alight.
