A Little Lighter Podcast with Alicia Free

Last winter I had the pleasure of discovering Alicia Free’s bellydance podcast “A Little Lighter.” Listening to her show made me feel connected to my beloved dance community even when lockdowns were in place. Alicia joyfully interviews fascinating dancers from all over the world including some of my favorites like Jill Parker and Ebony Qualls.

I got lucky enough to be included in Alicia’s all-star cast and am very proud to share my interview on her podcast. I admit I was pretty nervous about being interviewed but Alicia’s charismatic ways made it fun to “spill the tea.”

If you would enjoy learning a bit more about my beginnings as a designer, the scandalous truth about playing hooky from the Belly Dance Superstars Tour, and how recovery has been from double hip replacements… please take a listen.

Sincerely,

Melodia xo

“Melodia of Melodia Designs has been designing amazing dance wear and comfortable-AND-sexy street clothes for over 20 years. But do you know about her intriguing dance past with the Belly Dance Superstars and Urban Tribal Dance Company? Listen and find out!

Melodia has been adorning and accenting the beauty in fusion belly dancers and more beautiful movers with her oh so lovely Melodia Designs clothing for almost 20 years.

Melodia has been adorning and accenting the beauty in fusion belly dancers and more beautiful movers with her oh so lovely Melodia Designs clothing for almost 20 years. You probably either own or are coveting your own “Melo’s”, as we like to call Melodia’s textile creations, but not too many of us also know the belly dance life of Melodia Medley. In this podcast, we’ll hear about Melodia’s start as a dancer in a Urban Tribal Dance Co with Heather Stants and Mardi Love, her first memory of Jill Parker, and her year touring the USA with the Belly Dance Superstars.

And Melodia loves to talk about festivals and food and music in addition to wearable art, so this is going to be a very fun interview.”
