I recently attended the Bellydance BiZaRre Halloween themed show in Kitchener and was especially impressed with BellyUp's Ala Nar Ensemble. Their performance was energetic yet graceful and the precision of their movements was bang on. It is so nice to see a performance troupe beaming with happy smiles, clearly enjoying themselves as much as the audience was enjoying them!
