Event is taking place as part of Culture Days 2020.

Experience the distinct belly dance styles of Banat Al Raks and Hibiscus Dance during this hour long program. This event will be offered both in-person and online via livestream.

Banat Al Raks will perform both Egyptian Folkloric and Belly Dance styles of Middle Eastern Dance. Keep an eye out for some 'Unexpected Intersections' in their program!

Hibiscus Tribal Dance will then take to the stage to demonstrate a FCBD Style belly dance, a Transnational Synchronized Dance using cues and eye contact. This is a new style of dance that looks old, featuring elegant and earthy steps inspired by Spanish, Indian, Middle Eastern, and North African styles.

Tickets to the event are free, with donations gratefully accepted and going directly to the artists. Confirming your reservation in advance is strongly recommended as space is limited due to COVID-19 safety measures. Reserve here.
