Onca O’Leary

Madame Onca is the Hardest Working (witchy) Woman in Show Business, a career entertainer and event producer who travels internationally performing, teaching, and sharing her epic passion for belly-dance antics, heart-wrenching torch-songs, and stagecraft. A hostess and MC, she produces two annual award-nominated festivals, ABSfest: Americana Burlesque & Sideshow Festival, and TribOriginal: Tribal Dance, Music & Culture Camp in the Asheville, NC area, and she is plotting a third weekend-long event in Richmond, VA.

The creator of The World Spirit Tarot, hailed as an instant classic and translated into Spanish, she is also an internationally published artist and author. Onca has taught and lectured on the tarot for over ten years. From early on, her life was marinated in the occult influences, instilling her with a very practical 'kitchen witch' magickal sensibility. It is her sincere conviction that "the greatest form of Rebellion is Joy."


Bellydance for the Brave Broad in All of Us

Bellydance is a historic and venerable art form that builds strength, sass, and self-esteem. Come as you are, at any age or level: sisters of every gender welcome. We'll dance, laugh and explore the uplifting sensuality and sisterly hilarity of the dance!

Intro to the World of Tarot

Historicaly, the Tarot is a series of images that have survived 500 or more years in the West, partly as a parlor game, and partly as a soulful glimpse into the human condition. We'll talk about this and more. Bring a deck, if you have one. Onca will bring a few extras for examination and for sale. In a previous artistic life, Onca became an internationally known writer and artist on the subject of the Tarot.
