The most beautiful boy in bellydance
By Elsanne Barrows
Men in belly dance? At Libelula dance studio in the colonia San Antonio, exclusively women come to classes and I am often asked this question: do men belly dance? The answer: yes. Traditionally, folkloric styles of Middle Eastern dances have a very clear role for men in the dance. Yet, in art there are no boundaries, and Steven Eggers from California, with an international reputation that has taken him to Russia, Germany, and Colombia, to name a few countries, will share with our community just what has taken him so far: a genre of belly dance called Tribal Fusion Bellydance.
“The Most Beautiful Boy in Bellydance”
Sat, Mar 9, 7pm

In this genre, precision articulations are emphasized and a clear, concise control over isolations leaves audiences amazed. Rounding out the show will be more classic belly dance styles and a palette of colors and sounds, infusing spectators with the mystical movements and sumptuous rhythms that characterize dances from the Middle East. “The Most Beautiful Boy in Bellydance,” Eggers’ tagline, comes to San Miguel to the Shelter Theater Saturday, March 9, at 7pm, Tickets are 100 pesos and are available at the Shelter Theater (Vicente Guerrero 4, colonia San Rafael).
