Hi everyone, Greenstone Belly Dance director, Siobhan Camille, here!
I am delighted to share that I came 3rd in the Professional category of the Hamilton International Bellydance Competition 2020, and also received a special Judge’s Designation for Excellence in Stage Presence!
I had a fab time dancing at 1am at the results show on Sunday morning !😂 I stayed up until 3:30am Netherlands time enjoying the other dancers’ performances (and a particular shoutout to some of my Montréal dance friends, Leyana and Layal, I was so happy to see you dance again), and by the time I got into bed here at 4:30 the sun was waking up!
A huge thank you to the judges for their considered, constructive feedback. I highly recommend entering the HIBC to anyone seeking thoughtful advice to further their dance journey. And a big, big thank you to Aziza for encouraging me to enter.
A massive thanks to Eshe Yildiz. What an amazing, hardworking and caring woman this competition organiser is. I have a new favourite (paraphrased) quote thanks to Eshe: Don’t be afraid to sing your own praises, because every time you do, you’re sticking it to the patriarchy!
Siobhan Camille and Greenstone Belly Dance are thrilled to announce that Siobhan Camille is a finalist in the Hamilton International Bellydance Competition 2020!
Siobhan Camille had wanted to enter previously as Aziza highly recommended this particular competition due to the fact that the judges provide constructive, helpful feedback. However, it was always a bit much to enter a competition in Canada while working in Europe! Of course, things had to change this year with COVID-19 and Siobhan Camille finally got her chance to enter their online edition. She was certainly not disappointed and is very grateful for the opportunity to receive tips and pointers from dancers she admires.
Siobhan Camille will be performing at the Results & Celebration Online Ceremony this coming weekend at 7pm EST on Saturday the 27th of June (that’s 1am for us in the Netherlands, CEST!). If you’d like to attend the event and see Siobhan Camille (and all the other finalists!) perform, you can find the information on Facebook here.

Life experience is dance experience: are you ready to show your vulnerability on stage?
No matter your dance style, being clear on the message you want to communicate, and learning how to communicate and share yourself with the audience, will enrich your performances.
Want to take your dance to the next level? Join us for “Bellydance and the Authentic Self” with Amanda Rose at 14:00 on Saturday October 26 in Rotterdam (And there’s still places to perform at the hafla if you want to put your learning into practice that evening!).
