2022 Competition

Due to COVID-19, the competition became an online experience in 2020 and 2021. It was a brand new way to experience the excitement and exhilaration of Heart of America Belly Dance competition. Dancers from all over the world were able to participate in our online edition without having to travel or gather in large crowds.

For 2022 we are trying to determine how to proceed. We are considering continuing with the online competition along with the in-person competition show.  Contact Theresa  if would like to offer your thoughts on how to proceed with 2022.
