Van Isle Bellydance Dinner Extravaganza

ABC Productions, Allison, Bobbie and Cali, are pleased to announce the Van Isle Bellydance Dinner Extravaganza will be held Saturday, November 23 2019 at Ambrosia Catering Centre.  The past two years have been sell-outs so mark your calendars and prepare to start your holiday season with a wonderfully fun evening!!!

After great audience and performer feedback, we are continuing the format of a 3-set show with a buffet dinner and a cash bar from last year.  As always, belly dance of all levels, from beginners to seasoned professionals, from all over the island and lower mainland, will be showcased.  This will be a pre-sale event only as we will need to submit caterning numbers beforehand.  All seats will be paid spots in the venue.  There will be a limited number of discounted perforrmer's seats for those both wishing to dance and enjoy the dinner and the show.

Call for performers (Vancouver Island & Lower Mainland):

In the style of Cabaret Dinner Theatre, performers will be able to request 5, 7 or 10-minute performance slots.  Slots will be chosen by lottery for solo slots and group slots.  The stage will be theatre-in-the-round.*

*NOTE:  The theatre-in-the-round stage is 16' 8” X 12' 3” X 1' 6”

There will be three 45-50 min sets throughout the evening starting at 7:00, 8:00, 9:00 pm (10-15 min intermission between).  

Time slots are approximate BUT MAY NOT EXCEED THE TIME LIMIT.

10-minute slots:

As we often are only given the opportunity to dance 4 to 7-minute pieces, we wanted to give the opportunity for solo and or groups of dancers to stretch themselves and present a longer piece!

These 10-minute slots will be limited so we are asking that performers submit a video with their submission.  

Please complete the form below and include a video clip of at least 1 minute of the song/dance you are submitting to perform in the 10-minute slot.

5 and 7-minute slots:

5 and 7-minute slots are also available for both solo and/or group pieces.  There will be a lottery for soloists and a separate lottery for group pieces.  If your school/organization/group would like more than one group spot, please fill out the preferences section of the form.  

Once each school/organization/or independent group has been drawn for one initial slot, we will redraw out of those requesting a second piece for any remaining slots open.  We hope that this will give everyone an opportunity to dance while still creating a system for additional numbers to be requested.  


Complete submissions are due by midnight, Friday, September 20, 2019.  The lottery will be drawn and announced by the following Friday, September 27, 2019.

**Only completed application including music will be entered in the lottery.  

Please open and save the document to your computer and then you will find it easier to fill in the feilds.
