About the Indiana Bellydance Collective

The Indiana Bellydance Collective is a group of belly dance performers, musicians, students, and teachers in Indiana and surrounding areas. We are a 501 (c) 3 non-profit charity that:

  • Organizes and promotes shows to display talents of our members
  • Creates and supervises classes to educate and train those interested in belly dance and related music
  • Organizes and promotes educational seminars to gain historical perspective of belly dance/Middle-Eastern, North African, Turkish, and Hellenic (MENATH) dance and music

Our History

The Indiana Bellydance Collective was formed in 1978 as the Indiana State Association of Middle Eastern Teachers and Dancers (ISAMETD). The collective is completely ran by volunteer efforts of its members and officers.

Membership is open to anyone, and we welcome enthusiasts of all styles of belly dance and associated music! Also, if you would like to learn belly dancing or to play an instrument, find a member teacher near you in our member directories.

If you are looking for a dancer, musician, or troupe to perform at your event or venue, please contact us or check out our performers and musicians for hire directory.
