Kuranda Tribal Bellydance joins Tribal Zest at Festival Cairns

Sienna converted her personal car and trailer into a beautiful bedouin tent as we danced our way through the streets of Cairns to celebrate Festival Cairns' 50th birthday on 21st August 2011.  The theme for the 50th birthday celebration was 'time machine' and we were dressed to be gypsy hippies.

The tribe from Tribal Zest were all decked out and ready to dance.  So onto the tarmac barefeet and all we danced for the full parade through the streets of Cairns.  To join in the fun, Amanda and I from Kuranda added to the circle.

The crowd were really enjoying the festival parade, clapping, smiling, some people were so overwhelmed that they would run out from the crowd to give the dancers a kiss on the cheek.

The noise was incredible, so we added to our music with tabla drumming and zilling, to show how talented we all are.

The next day, imagine my surprise when our very own Amanda shows up in the Cairns Post.  I am not surprised, her energy was shining through as she danced and smiled her way through Cairns.
