Event Description: An entertaining evening of culture. A wonderful blend of sensational Moroccan and Middle Eastern food washed down with a beautiful blend of the dances which were influential in creating what we know today as 'Bellydance.'

Lively narration will guide us on a dynamic dance journey from Africa, Spain, and India, to Egypt and the wider Middle East. Creating a historical and cultural context for your understanding of the vivacious, elegant, spiritual, and sensual dance that is 'Bellydance' or 'Raqs Sharqi’ - dance of the East.

Lorna Gow, star of Edinburgh Fringe shows in 2004 and 2005, and recently returned from performing in Cairo, Egypt, will perform Oriental, Folklorique and Modern Egyptian dance. A range of dancers will perform in dance styles as diverse as African, Flamenco, Indian, Bedouin/folk and American Tribal.

Helping increase cultural awareness and tolerance through understanding. Just as the dance of one nation influences the dance of another.
