Oriental Dance – Where West Meets East

March 9 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Cost: FREE

Access: Steps into the building; mobile ramp available on request; accessible toilet; no hearing loop

About: A talk exploring Oriental dance (belly dance) with dancer Jane Wass. The attitude towards women dancing in the UK is different from that in North Africa and Arabic countries where belly dance is seen as haram – forbidden. Our freedom to express ourselves through dance and our bodies is not the same and our right to dance is still not extended to many women. We will try some moves and watch some performances from adult women in Jane’s class.

Organiser: Jane Wass: t: 07950 531917
