If you want to get into the 2012 Minnesota Renaissance Festival for free, just sign up to compete in the Middle Eastern Belly Dance Competition! Fill in the form before the deadline, take the free lesson, and have fun at the competition! In the past, it has been very low pressure. There are usually drummers, and dancers improvise to live music. There are different age groups, and anyone can win! The themed weekend “Silk Road, Discover the Riches” is September 1-3 in Shakopee, MN. There will also be live music, free belly dance lessons, and performances by the Sisters of the Sahara.
