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!

Helene 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.

Dance 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!
