Dance Performance Announcements

A local paper did a nice little article on Raks Nativity. Raks Nativity is this Saturday. Highly recommend that you check it out!


Melina of Moody St. Circus/Daughters of Rhea is holding a recital on December 12th from 5:30-7:30. My class through Najmat is participating; we’re doing a shaabi choreography.

If you’re interested in attending, it is advised that you buy your tickets ahead of time here.

I *think* way back in September I had written about auditioning for Raks Nativity, the story of Jesus’s birth through Middle Eastern dance. I have a small role (inn keeper and village girl) in the play. I also am designing the program. The play is a creative idea and is a fundraiser for Cradles to Crayons, are organization that helps young children. The show is very thoughtfully put together; the ladies in charge did quite a bit of research. I also like that Raks Nativity includes many people in the community; I sometimes forget how large the dance community in Boston is, and it’s always heart-warming, as cheesy as it sounds, for so many different people to come together not only for the love of dance but also for a charity.

Raks Nativity will be held on Dec 4, 2010 at 7:30 PM, at Chelmsford Center for the Arts, 1A North Road, Chelmsford MA. Buying tickets ahead of time is advised.

The details are updated.  It’ll be held in MIT Kresge Auditorium on October 10, 2010, 12 noon.

Kuchipudi, Bharatanatyam, and Odissi will be performed. I’ve never been or performed in this particular show, but I hear very positive things. I’m going to be in it with my class.

Meiver is having her show on August 18th at 8:00 PM in the Cambridge Multicultural Center. The show will benefit an organization called Matahari that works against the exploitation of people.

Triveni Dance school is holding their student concert on October 10th. It’ll feature Kuchipudi, Bharatanatyam, and Odissi. Details TBA

I’ll be in both 🙂
