Please join us on Sunday, Feb 26 at 1pm for our annual Emerald Extravaganza - A Bellydance Brunch Benefit! There is plenty of room for all to dance, and we would love to see you onstage! We’d also love to see you in the audience, enjoying fabulous performances, nomming delicious food and drinks, and searching for treasures at the Belly Dancer Garage Sale.

Entry is by donation, we suggest $5-10, or more as you are able to contribute. All proceeds from the Hafla, Garage Sale and Raffle go towards supporting the Emerald Sanctuary Belly Dance Retreat.


Please contact Indigo at with any questions, or if you’d like to dance or volunteer. Facebook event page is here, and of course join us for Retreat information and community at the Emerald Sanctuary Retreat FB page.



Would you like to dance? Please contact Indigo at with the following information:

Your legal name

Dance name or troupe name

Preferred dance set — recorded, or recorded with live drum solo (limited spots available)

Please state if you have specific requests regarding props





Emerald Sanctuary events absolutely cannot function without the essential support of our beloved and appreciated volunteers – the Werker Beez! We need volunteers between the hours of 11am - 5pm to help the hafla run smoothly, from set up, take down, taking donations at the door, to manning (beez-ing) the Garage Sale table. 





Just as important as the dancers who entertain us, are the announcers who delight and inform us! We need volunteer MCs to introduce the dancers and convey information to the audience. If you love to MC (or are MC-curious and would love to try it out in a safe and supportive space!) we would love to have you. Just like at retreat, we would like to have several MCs over the course of the show. If you are also dancing, we can absolutely set your schedule to allow you to do both.





As a grassroots, not-for-profit organization, Emerald Sanctuary Retreat relies on volunteers and donations from generous souls like you! Thank you for supporting our retreat!
