Summer Hafla with Shahrzad!

Shahrzad

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.


June’s hafla will feature new solo works by Developing Choreography students, select teachers, and special guests, Shahrzad and Marshall! Admission is free for Summer 2017 Beginner I students!


Join us for an evening of coin-jingling, fringe-flying fun! See the video below for a glimpse of our past haflas!


Date(s): Saturday, June 17

Time(s): 8:00-10:00 pm

Location: Sahara Dance Central
