This year’s judges are announced

The dancers of SharqiDance will decide our prizewinners for 2017

Yamé will lead a panel of five


Yamé is a Brazilian-born, NJ-based professional belly dancer and mermaid aficionado. She is the owner of SharqiDance, a belly dance school operating out of Shore Stars Dance Academy in Wall, NJ where she is lucky to teach some of the most amazing women (and sometimes men) the art of raqs sharqi (also known as belly dance). The Asbury Park Promenade of Mermaids is her favorite event all year, so she is honored and psyched to be performing again this year!
