Special guest Ian Nagoski: ANAR DANA Seattle Cultural Evening

A special feature of the Seattle ANAR DANA Project is our Cultural Evening Series at Studio Deep Roots Dance. On the Friday evening before our rehearsal weekend we have a potluck at the studio and look at films, photos, costumes, listen to music, discuss history, ethnography and politics of one of the regions from our project.

I am very excited that we have a special guest IAN NAGOSKI for the first Cultural Evening of the 2019/20 season. Part of our repertoire this season are dances from the Armenian diaspora, specifically Fresno of the 1950’s. This special presentation will put that in a bigger context of immigrant music from the Ottoman Empire in the US. Please join us!!!

These evenings are open to everyone 
Suggested donation is $15
Please feel free to pass this on and invite your friends. If you can, bring something for the potluck that fits the evening’s theme.
Please email me to reserve your space!
Best regards,

Bellydance Swap n' Shop

1pm-5pm Saturday, November 16th

Time to clean out those closets, empty your baskets, dig through your jewelry box, and haul it on down to Studio Deep Roots for a good ol' fashioned Swap n' Shop! ALL styles of bellydance costuming, jewelry, props, instruments, and accoutrement encouraged.

Bring a little snack or drink to share, we'll put on some music, play some inspirational dance videos in the lounge, and shop each other's stashes to find new homes for amazing bellydance swag.

There is no cost to participate, as a seller or a shopper. We do gratefully accept donations toward the studio operating costs, so feel free to bring some cash to throw in the basket.
