The ones who hadn’t gone on holiday dressed up for a very private hafla 6 June. First song we performed to was “Running in the Alleys” by Mizna. Then we danced to “Taksim” by Canconier and the last song was “Zar” by Satori. All improvised American Tribal Style® bellydance in different formations. Thank you to Solveig, Anne, Emilie and Miriam for the beautiful performance!
