PLEASE TAKE A LOOK AT … BUDAPEST, HUNGARY
Judit Virag and Yvette Nuridsany from Budapest send us this:
Tribal Festival Budapest Vol. 2
This year we are going to organize our festival as a small, friendly, family atmosphere event, and establish a new tradition: I kept our guest, Samantha Emanuel (who was already there at Vol 1) on my mind during the search for the venue, and the place I found hopefully describes her style: wild and romantic.
The Festival takes place in a villa that is sited at the heart of Budapest, with an amazingly helpful staff, beautiful environment, and with useful embellishments like 200 candles, 100 white flowers, and torches in the garden. The entire event with all the workshops, open stage evening, contest will ensure the cheerful ambience.
Time: November.11th –13th 2011. Please take a look at:
The entrance is limited because of the lack of space, please register as soon as you can! Our performers’ line up: Samantha Emanuel (UK), Téglás Krisztina(HUN), Martina Crowe Hewitt (GER), Eliran Amar (Isr), Novák Viktória(HUN), Rustiqua(SK), Khamsa Tribe(HUN), Sciahina(IT), Berill(HUN), Judit Virág (HUN), Alexis Southall(UK), Versus(SK), Alishaba(SK)

NEW STATEMENT FROM CAROLENA NERICCIO
To end certain uncertainties the European tribal association DACH wrote a letter to Carolena Nericcio, which we feel honored to publish here:
I need your advice. There's a big rumor in Germany about ATS®.
Someone spread the statement, that no one is anymore allowed to dance ATS® except the person is "certified". And no one is allowed to teach ATS® without beeing certified. And if someone without a cert is teaching ATS®, and would be discovered, the person will be punished with a penalty of 10.000 dollars.”
And they received the following answer immediately:
„RUMOR! One does not need to be certified to teach. TT is an elective. Heaven knows that ATS® spread worldwide because people just bought my videos (thank you) and started teaching and performing. Please let me know where I can post this info publically to put out the fire.”
We are happy to fulfil this wish!

ABOUT THE DEATH OF JOHN COMPTON
on Monday, October, 15th 2012, we received the following obituary
"The dance world has suffered another great loss with the passing of an incredible icon. John Compton. As one of the most popular male bellydancers in the United States, he was best known for his work with his tribal folkloric troupe, Hahbi 'Ru, and his memorable performances spanned several decades. He was an amazing performer, talented teacher and a wonderful person, and his wit and wisdom will remain in our hearts forever.

SOLD OUT – SOLD OUT – SOLD OUT
Exactly 5,588 visitors were counted at the just ended 20th
Oriental Festival of Europe in Duisburg, Germany
. Whilst many belly dance events in Western Europe faltered in 2012 (some of them not just slightly) Promoters Leyla Jouvana and Roland managed to steer against the tide and not only reached their best numbers of the last years, again, but even bested them. What a triumph for their 20th
anniversary festival! Even the renowned contest “Bellydancer of the World” was sold out! Responsible for this surely were the exiting shows and workshops but also the habitually reliable and wear resistant management of the festival. We congratulate heartfelt and are looking forward to the next 20 years.
