Bwitchs International Bellydance Fusion festival - the second edition of India’s Largest International Bellydance festival in India took place on March 11th-14th, 2016.
It saw a whopping variety of acts, a never seen before variety from Khaleegy, hip hop bellydance fusion, Indian Classical Bellydance Fusion, Egyptian Street Shaabi, Tribal Fusion, Samba Fantasy Fusion, American Cabaret Bellydance, Baladi, Flamenco Fusion, Theatrical Bellydance among others.
This was the first time the bellydance festival took the form of a retreat. It was out of the city, in the quiet cradle of Nazri Resort – a perfect setting. Close to the beach, in the heart of Baga and yet very quiet with the view of the hills and lakes.
The main venue for our shows was TITOS – one of India’s top favorite art and entertainment venue.
An independent, well travelled, gypsy spirit who quit her glamorous, hi-flying corporate life to embark on a soul satisfying journey.
She created positive energy in her class and left me feeling eager to learn more. Her amiable nature made me feel at ease. A brilliant dancer with graceful moves, Leena is an absolute delight to watch.
I loved her strong warm up, encouraging friendly attitude and also her total strict disciplinarian persona! Leena has a strong individual style, eye for detail and knows well how to take her students on the next level!
Leena is someone I count as one of our favorite artists. I am always touched by the versatility of her talent, her innovative, international acts are one of a kind - can be compared with those I've seen in Europe and America.
Art is the only serious thing in the world. And the artist is the only person
who is never serious.
