Event Description:

Harlem Hafla

Shake your body with Sisters of Sharqui at Harlem Hafla, a day of workshops followed by a night of performances in North African belly-dancing. Classes begin with a taste of the basics and then get more advanced, with Amar Gamal teaching attendees how to find their own signature style and Yasser Darwish sharing folkloric Saidi dance moves from his native Egypt. Then the teachers become the performers in an evening extravaganza that also features Somra El Nubia, Khuzama Lavender, Zenaide Zeina, Natalia Perlaza, Troupe Asmara, and many more.
