Around the World with Dance!

April’s Installment of the Istanbul Hafla Series featuring Holly Kirby’s Tango and salsa stylings! 

We have been running the Istanbul Hafla Series for well over two years now, and I know that I have been fascinated to see not only the local bellydance talent in our area, but also the dancers from other styles that we have engaged with in the past events. My specific vision for this series was to expose bellydance students and instructors to other styles of dance and simultaneously, other dance forms to the art of bellydance. I think we have had a successful run of it and this month’s edition is likely to be another great show!

Pittsburgh is blessed with a vibrant and diverse world dance community. On April 14th, head out to Istanbul Grille in Lawrenceville for great Turkish food and a spectacular night of world dance performance, followed by an open dance floor. This show stars award winning local Latin dancer and instructor Holly Kirby, who will be performing sizzling Salsa and Tango performances, with additional performances by Pittsburgh’s finest bellydancers including, Sara DeRoy, Mehira, Unsuk, Nawal, Kate, and Janim. Holly will lead a dance lesson for audience members at intermission, and after the performances the dance floor will be open for a world dance party. Don’t miss this dynamic performance!

The Istanbul Haflas are monthly bellydance events at the Istanbul Grille in Lawrenceville. We feature a different guest artist each month. We also feature bellydance performers of varying levels. If you are interested in performing at one of our haflas, please email Janim (me!) with your request.

Haflas with their intimate and cozy atmosphere, offer the perfect chance for you to involve your friends, to show off a few moves, but most importantly to learn the dance styles of other dancers/ instructors in the community.
