Let’s take another moment to celebrate females. The Kennedy Dancers of Jersey City are performing Goddess Night – An Evening of Belli Dance and Female Wisdom this Saturday, April 22 at 7:30pm at 79 Central Ave. (the corner of Beacon and Central) in Jersey City.
Yes, there is belly dancing (apparently the “y” is an Americanized thing) throughout. The presentation is multifaceted — there will be a mystical theme overlaying the following dance styles: cultural, folk, tribal fusion and Arabic.
The dances are meant to transport you back to a time when belly dancing had meaningful purposes. Seriously. Once upon a time, belly dancing was an important component to traditions, whether rituals, rights of passage or other significant life events.
Kennedy Dancers Inner City Youth Junior Dance Company are performing with choreography by Diane Dragone.
Tickets are $20pp in advance and $25pp at the door. Price includes light fare and bevvies.
Best part: All proceeds from the fundraiser help the Inner City Junior Dance Company, which is awesome.
Experience something great & feel good about it,
