New Anthology/ Video Podcast Series /Guest Posting Guidelines

Share your Words * Share your Story!

We are now accepting submissions for the next anthology from Paulette Rees-Denis and Gypsy Caravan Tribal Bellydance®. This year’s theme is:

Dance and Desire: From the Body to the Page

Each anthology is lovingly compiled by Paulette and her team to share the community’s perspective on Gypsy Caravan Tribal Bellydance® and the magic that it creates, as well as any style of dance and movement! These bodies have to move!

Whether that magic appears in the awakening connecting you have found to your body, an opening of your heart, a deeper dive into life, or just the fostering of an appreciation for life as a dance – all of us as dancers are touched by this magic of movement. In past anthologies, dancers have discussed their very first impressions of the dance, their thoughts on stage performance, their thoughts on dancing through the winter. So many have contributed lovely thoughts and words…

And now YOU can be a part of this tradition!

What’s your dance story? How do the movements, music, community, costuming make you feel? And how has the beautiful dance enriched your life and spirit? We’re hunting for some great stories to share with our global community. Whether it’s an article, poem, drawing or photograph, we’d love to share your powerful experiences. This year, we’re asking dancers to describe how dance has shaped their desires and transformed their lives.

Deadline for this next release is March 15th, 2017!

All entries will receive a pdf copy of the first two anthologies as a thank you gift for participating!
