Dances Under the Crescent Moon
Friday, May 8, 2009 11:04 AM
I know there are a lot of dance (especially belly dance) enthusiasts on this Meetup group, so I thought you'd like to know about an event I'm involved in.
This event is a performance, but makes for a
great Meetup because folks can get inspired and discuss it afterward!? There will be intermittent explanations of the cultural aspects of each
dance throughout the show.
An elegant evening of dance, featuring amazing traditional women's dances from around the globe!Dances Under the Crescent Moon

Eriksen's Traditional Dance Theatre is a year-long intensive dance
training project. This year, nine dancers present dances and costumes
from a diverse cross-section of traditions: Berber dances of TUNISIA,
the urban dance Baladi from EGYPT, Dabke from LEBANON, dances of the
TURKISH ROMA, a dreamy canopy dance from AZERBAIJAN, the rice harvest
dance of the northern Iranian province of GILAN and the dance of the
Kabeliya tribe of snake charmers from RAJASTHAN. PLUS, Helene Eriksen
will present dances from several different traditions.
ethnologist Helene Eriksen began her teaching career researching and
performing dances of the Balkans, and celebrates her 30th anniversary
this year. An acclaimed international touring artist, she will be
presenting exquisite solo dances as well as featuring her Seattle
students in their second full evening performance. This event is the
culmination of nine intensive training workshops under Eriksen's
direction. Don't miss this spectacle of grace, fire and color!
