When I get asked which hotel attendees should stay at for the Las Vegas Bellydance Intensive®, my answer probably seems obvious. Stay at the Flamingo! Not only is it the most convenient place to stay (roll out of bed and stagger to your workshops), but they also give us great rates for our guests. Additionally, when you book in our room block, you help the event keep its cost down (since the price of the convention halls are based, in part, on the number of hotel rooms we are able to book). Win-Win.

Have you booked your room yet? To book online, click https://www.totalrewards.com/hotel-reservations/main/?propCode=FLV&groupCode=SFBEL3

Or, you can call the Reservations Office at 1-800-835-5686 (on or before the cut off date of Tuesday August 13th), and identify yourself as an attendee of the Bellydance Intensive using Reservation ID "SFBEL3".

I have some phenomenal news to share. The room prices started dropping at the Flamingo to the point that our room block for the Las Vegas Bellydance Intensive® was going to end up costing more than to book with the Flamingo directly. However, that is changing. As soon as the hotel is able to process our changes on their website, the new pricing will be as follows:

Deluxe Room Rates

$40.00 Sunday through Thursday Nights
$105.00 Friday and Saturday Nights

Go Room Rates

$60.00 Sunday through Thursday Nights
$135.00 Friday and Saturday Nights

Anyone that is currently in our room block, will automatically receive the lower prices.

Not only are the new prices are substantially lower than what you can get from the Flamingo directly, our group is not required to pay the $18/day resort fees that everyone else has to pay.

If you previously booked outside of our room block, and would like to take advantage of this offer, please send your reservation information to samira@bellydanceintensive.com, and we will make sure our Flamingo representative helps you out.

Additionally, if you have not yet booked your room, give us a few more days to get the correct pricing up on the Flamingo website. Our cut off date is August 13th.

Festival Performers?

Do you have a list of who the festival performers are? I never saw the mention of how to become one of them. But I am just curious to know who the individuals are that will be performing. Are they trained dancers who are known or just anyone who performs in their hometowns?

At this event, there is a difference between the "pro shows" and the "festival". The pro-show performers are selected through an audition process and are typically professional dancers or very strong amateurs. The festival is a different thing all-together. The performers range in styles and abilities because it is on a first-come/first-served basis. The festival performance registration form is on our website. The line up will be printed in our program. If you are still interested in performing, we have a small handful of spaces left, however, our program has already gone to print, so we would be unable to list you in the schedule.
