Bayou Belly 2018 Workshop with Draconis


  • University of Louisiana, Lafayette Lafayette, LA (map)

Eclectic Fusion Combos!

A long time ago (circa 2011), the idea of bringing a festival to Louisiana started off when one of the THBee’s, Mrs. Jeri, commented that there were so many people who traveled from our home state of Louisiana to go to Texas and other regional festivals. 

Well that comment sparked an idea in our fearless Mistress Ilea’s head and in 2012 Bayou Belly Festivale was born. Mistress, KK, Cheramie, Shannon, Catherine, Kiley, and all of our Bees work tirelessly to make sure that this is the best belly dance festival that you can experience. For many of you in your home state!

Thank you for allowing us to put this event on, for you , for this community for our 6th year! It has grown from humble beginnings as a short two day event in two hotel conference rooms in Opelousas, into the beautiful production that we have today at UL-Lafayette.

Just like there is no “I” in our Trybe, There is no Bayou Belly without “you.”
