For anyone that might be following the website instead of our events on facebook, I would like to invite you to Join us on the 16th for the first ever Shambling Shimmies Summer Hafla!

Students from our Tuesday and Thursday classes are welcome to join us from 6-8 for a free makeup and costuming workshop before the party. We’ll be going over the basic elements of tribal belly dance costuming and discussing the purposes and benefits of each, and we’ll go through application of stage makeup together. Bring your makeup kit and a mirror that you can see your whole face in. If you’d like to attend, but you don’t participate in our regular classes, contact us to register for the workshop for a $20 fee.

The hafla itself will take place from 8-11, after the workshop. The party will be potluck style – BYOB and a covered dish to share – we’ll supply some basics (burgers, hot dogs, chips, etc).  Any dancin’ guests interested in performing for the rest of the attendees are welcome to do so – pretty please? we want to see! 🙂 We’ll have a sign up sheet at the party (please bring any recorded music on an MP3 player). We’ll also have some live music (bring your drums, zills, or other instruments) and, weather permitting, a fire dancing performance!

Please RSVP on the event on our page on facebook, or using the contact form on this website.  Hope to see you there!
