The 2nd Biennial Adelaide Belly Dance Festival will be held over the October Long weekend in the beautiful and historic seaside village of Port Noarlunga 34 km South of Adelaide.
The weekend brings the entire Adelaide Belly Dance community together as well as offering visitors the opportunity to experience the wealth of talented teachers and performers our state has to offer whilst staying in one of South Australia’s most beautiful holiday regions. Port Noarlunga's main street is dotted with artisan cafes and fantastic restaurants, nearby are McLaren Vale wineries and spectacular beaches. 

This year the Festival will host special Interstate guests: Melusina (VIC), Phynia (WA), Xaeda (QLD), Virginia and Nasser (VIC). 


“The community aspect of Belly Dance is really important to me and was the driving force for taking on The Festival. My vision is that it will bring together different schools to build positive and creative relationships and share in the unique and individual talents of all who participate,” Kylea Hartley - Festival Director


“Wow wow wow... We have arrived at Port Noarlunga SA and I must say this is the most beautiful setting for a festival I have ever seen. The bay and view is so picturesque. This certainly won't be the last time I bring my silks here - I am in love with this place!” Peta Jones – SILK BAZAAR (NSW)
