Waking Persephone is a different kind of dance event experience, with a core focus on education and exploration, creating community while breaking borders. While there are indeed be performing opportunities, the main goal is an intensive series of classes, lectures, and activities featuring both new and established faces in the genres of dark, gothic, steampunk, experimental, theatrical, and ritual dances. Over the course of the event, there are ritual/community gathering, two gala shows, live music performances, workshops, master classes, panel discussions, vending, an afterparty ball, and more.

Welcome to the website for the Waking Persephone Festival- a bellydance fusion event with a focus on education, community, and exploration.
