THE MEGA MASSIVE
In its 19th year, The MEGA Massive™ dance academy will be held at Diamond Dance Studio in Henderson, Nevada, from March 12th – March 19th, 2023, as participants travel from distant corners of the globe to study with super-star master level dance instructors. This event is known the world over for its intimate class sizes, serious course study focused on helping dancers reach their highest potential, and personal service and attention. The MEGA Massive is a “Bellydance College,” packaged in a “5-Star Boutique Experience”!
This intensive dance retreat focuses on building dancers into their personal best, moving with their own voice, and performing at the top of their game. The class sizes are kept purposefully small and intimate to allow our instructors to give detailed feedback and personal attention to each student. It is a one-of-a-kind event that attracts both the consummate professional and the serious hobbyist. Our 2023 instructors will include: Zoe Jakes, Kami Liddle, Jill Parker, Ebony Qualls, Amy Sigil of UNMATA, Jillina of BDSS & BDE, and Sadie Marquardt!
Massive NEXTGEN™, the new brain-child of Bedouin Events’ producer, Tori Halfon, is a Fusion Dance Festival, featuring 20 international instructors of various styles and genre of Bellydance.

Such an amazing 8 days! Thank you to all of The Tribal Massive teachers for creating such a fruitful experience. Thank you to Tori Halfon and Yaniv Halfon for having the vision to create an event like no other. Most of all thank you to my peers that spent the last 8 days being open and honest, as well as supportive. This is truly a year I will never forget. I will miss you all.
Finally back to reality after an amazing week at The Tribal Massive. I want to say thank you to so many people who make MASSIVE an incredible event; first off to Tori Halfon for working all year to make our week together unforgettable. To all the very dedicated hard working students whom I’ve had the pleasure to watch grow over the years and feel have learned as much from them as they have learned from me, the team of teachers who I am proud to call colleagues, and lastly the crew of dancers who spent so many hours in the studio to help me take my vision to the stage. So much Gratitude!
