OMEDA is a not-for-profit, volunteer-run group for professional and amateur dancers, musicians, students and anyone with an interest in the music and dance of the Middle East. There are many benefits to joining OMEDA . . . aside from belonging to a lively, dance-loving group of vivacious, high-energy folk 🙂
- Free or discounted entry to all OMEDA events
- Discounted stall holder fees at all OMEDA events
- Opportunity to perform at OMEDA events, including the annual Moomba Parade in Melbourne.
- Ability to apply for a Sword Exemption Licence*
- Directory listing on the OMEDA website (for teachers, performers and suppliers)
- Optional subscription to Bellydance Oasis Magazine (valued at $39 per annum)
* Did you know it is illegal to buy, own or sell a sword in Victoria without a licence ? A individual licence would cost over $120, but OMEDA members can apply for a free exemption by downloading and submitting this form. For more details, read this article.
