ORGANISED by Hipnotize, the evening featured Middle Eastern belly dancing laced with a wintery twist.
THIS was my first exposure to belly dancing – other than via James Bond movies! It looks like it would be a heap of fun and a great way to combine fitness, dance, and socialising.
THE evening featured performances from: Tatyana (Aisha Belly dance studio), Aaralyn (TribalDiva Belly Dance Company) and the Manawataki Drummers joined by Robert Koffie Fugah. Plus many more colourful performances from around New Zealand.
TICKETS for the event were sold via TicketDirect. If you are interested, you should keep an eye out for upcoming events.
