Belly dance, past and present

92Y's Fridays at Noon series presents Blanca Curates Belly Dance Past and Present, a survey of raqs sharqi, belly dance and other Middle Eastern dance traditions.

Fri, Dec 2, 12 pm (free admission)
Join an array of NYC's belly dance master dancers and teachers for performances of raqs sharqi, belly dance and other Middle Eastern dance traditions. Originally a celebratory folk dance, belly dance is evolving into a sophisticated dance form as it continues to play a jubilant role in the society of family and friends of both genders and all ages. Artists include luminaries Blanca, showing her dances The Fool and Filii Neidhardii, Zenaide, (Night of Love and Bamby Drum Solo, two dances in the classical Egyptian sharqi style), Anahid Sofian, and Fayzah Fire, with her characteristic blend of tango, tribal dance, popping and belly dance. Plus, a chance to learn some basic belly dance moves yourself!
