Introduction to Women's Dances of the Orient
-- with Helene Eriksen!

a fantastic opportunity to study several styles of Eastern dance in depth, with master teacher, choreographer, and dance ethnologist, Helene Eriksen

Introductory Weekend for ANAR DANA SF Bay Area Project #5

During the Introductory weekend, Helene will give an overview of a wide range of Women's Dances of the Orient -- an incredible journey across three continents: from North Africa, the Middle East, the Balkans, the Caucasus, Iran, Central Asia, and Northern India! Helene will show videos, teach the flavor of dances from many regions, and discuss the styles. At the end of the weekend, attendees will pick seven styles as to be the repertoire for the third ANAR DANA SF Bay Area Project. You can become acquainted with Helene's offerings during the introductory weekend -- with no further obligation -- before deciding whether to join the Project.

The Introductory Weekend can be taken independently from the Project
and provides a wonderfully informative survey course on Women's Dances of the Orient in itself.  Attending the Introductory Weekend does not imply any obligation to join the full Project.
