Welcome to our exciting publication promoting not just the ancient art of Middle Eastern Dance, but celebrating its defining history, the exciting changes of the present and the creative dreams of the future. Meet the stars, their shows, and their points of view!
The Belly Dance Chronicles is the official publication of The Isis Foundation, a government recognized 501(c)(3) non-profit entity, created to promote the art of Middle Eastern dancers and musicians.
