Sahara Dance Fall Hafla with Twila

A “hafla” is a Middle Eastern dance party, and this is a great opportunity to take your belly dancing out of the classroom and try out your moves in a supportive in-studio party atmosphere.

October’s hafla will feature:

  • New solo works by our Fall Developing Choreography dancers
  • Performance by special guest, Twila!
  • Rin Ajna’s Performance Intensive students
  • Beginner I students performing “Aziza”
  • Faculty and special guests

PLUS: the open dancing will be to a curated list of our soloists’ favorite dance songs!

  • Beginner I (Aziza) students receive *free* admission!
  • Henna will be available for purchase by Heena Shah

Join us for an evening of coin-jingling, fringe-flying fun!
