Jukebox Belly Dance

Baharat, my student troupe is growing and changing a bit. It's become Baharat Dance Ensemble and includes my intermediate and advanced level students as well as guest dancers. This offers me the opportunity to invite dancers from the community to help me round out a choreography or work on special projects. It's a belly dance hook-up of sorts! Short term commitment, no other strings attached...fun and excitement for everyone.

The debut of the ensemble will be January 22, 2010 at Austin's Belly Dance Association (ABA) Jukebox show. This show features ABA members bellydancing to all non-Middle Eastern music. Think rock, pop, techno, country...whatever they want! The exciting news is, we'll be closing the show and we've worked sooooo hard on a Michael Buble number that will be the perfect ending for a fun and innovative evening.

Want to attend? Well, if you are already an ABA member, you and your invited guest get in free to the "I Survived the Holidays" party in the lobby from 6:30-8:00, where ABA will have snacks, drinks, and the photo albums that have archived our long existence (28 years!) on display. Show starts at 8pm, doors open to the public for ticket sales at 7:30pm, at the Dougherty Arts Center, 1110 Barton Springs Rd.
