New Bellydance Documentary in the Making!

I met Amy Smith on a LinkedIn group for dance historians. Amy, aka “Alizal Afet,” is the editor and publisher of bellydancenewengland.com, a webzine for bellydancers in the New England region that includes feature stories, reviews, and event announcements. She is also associate producer of a documentary on the bellydance scene in New England. “Aziza!” (produced and directed by DeAnna Putnam) documents the “nightclub era” in the Boston area between 1950-1980. This is a period of dance that often gets skipped over on the cabaret-to-tribal oral chronologies. Amy has given me permission to share this 12 minute clip of that documentary with you. I found it tremendously interesting and look foreward to its completion. And wait ’til you hear George Abdo’s eastern Massachusetts accent! Who knew?
