ON BOTH PARTS OF THE BORDER –
THE STARS OF THE MILKA/KHALIDA FESTIVAL

The stars are mainly from Belgium and the Netherlands, which perform and instruct (some of them at least) an June 12th and 13th in Dutch Heerlen and German Würselen. But the more German audience will appear the more German dancers should be seen next time on stage and in front of the work shop rooms. (Which could happen to every other nation in exactly the same manner) But for now look forward to the following artists, please:

ISERONA
Dancing has been a part of Iserona’s life since she was 5, but since the past few years oriental/middle-eastern dance has been her passion number one. Iserona’s performances radiate the pure joy and personal harmony that she shares in this art form as well as in life. Find out more about Iserona on www.iserona.eu
CHADIA & LUNA
Chadia and Luna have known each other since school days, but finding oriental dance has brought them even closer. Now, many years later, they graduated in Heerlen as professional oriental dancers and instructors and often perform together as duo Chadia and Luna. They won third place in Leyla Jouvana’s Bellydancer of the World competition for Duo’s in 2008, and in 2009 Luna won first place in the Benelux Bellydance Championships!
