MEDANZ 2018 Annual Festival

Welcome to the 2018 Festival!

The MEDANZ festival organizers and the MEDANZ committee invite you to Napier for a weekend of dancing, socializing, and belly dance merriment.

The MEDANZ Annual festival is a weekend-long event that features belly dance workshops, performances, shopping, socializing, and dance opportunities. The festival is open to all belly dancers and all music and dance enthusiasts! Tickets can be purchased later in the year.

MEDANZ was established 26 years ago to provide a supportive environment for Middle Eastern Dance, to foster interest and understanding by sharing information and educating the general public about its origins, developing and promoting ethical standards, providing a forum for dancers to discuss significant issues to the community, and facilitating learning and performance opportunities.
