More than 30 outstanding area and international performers ranging from advanced students to professionals will take part in the Bellydance Goddess Show at 8 p.m., May 15, at The Stage, in Bonita Springs. Several bellydance styles will be exhibited in both group and solo presentations.

The show features cabaret-influenced performers of many modern and traditional styles, showcasing Rathor’s students, a local performing group from her retreat, and concludes with performances by her dance troupe, Gypsy Sugar, plus a solo by Ansuya. After the performances, attendees can join the fun the dance floor.
