An upcoming episode of Huell Howser's show, "California's Gold," will focus on the Raqs L.A. show. A producer I contacted said the episode hasn't been scheduled yet, but that when it is, it will be announced on the Web site: www.calgold.com.
Also, I haven't found any information yet on the new dates for the 2009 Raqs L.A., but info is coming out about the Tribal L.A. event September 27-28. It'll be held at the Glendale Civic Auditorium (1401 N. Verdugo Road) and will feature performances and vending all day. Workshops will be offered by Rachel Brice, Zoe Jakes, Kami Liddle, Fat Chance Bellydance, Elizabeth Strong, and Moria.
