Just in time for Halloween, join New England's pioneers of gothic belly dance in a showcase featuring the variety and artistry of Gothic Belly Dance in an historic vaudeville theatre, that, if it wasn't haunted before certainly will be after by the beauty and passion of darkly dramatic dancers from Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Maine, Connecticut and beyond. Together they represent the darker side of New England--home to H.P. Lovecraft,Edward Gorey and Stephen King. Guest artists Tempest and Ariellah will be the featured performers for the evening, along with Medusa Maidens, Lotus Moon, Zingari East, Primal Redemption/Phoenix Avathar, Sabrina, Tribal Storm, Aepril Schaille, Lilymoonstorm, Nepenthe, your hostess Badriya and more.

Workshop Intensives wtih Tempest and Ariellah:
4 hours of instruction with two of the biggest names in this dynamic artform! Students will learn about the heart and soul of Gothic Belly Dance, glean performance secrets and work in both Tribal and Cabaret-based combinations and techinque. Tempest will teach "Dancing Darkly--Introduction to Gothic Belly Dance" and Ariellah presents "The Darker Side of Drilling." All levels welcome.

You can take both drum and dance workshops -- then, stay into the evening and enjoy the hafla and dinner with us. You can even stay over that night if you wish -- communal accommodations are available for a reasonable price. You are welcome to attend only the workshop portion of the event, or only the halfa/dinner -- but ideally you can make a whole drumming-dancing day of it!

Drummers gather at noon.

1:00-2:00 Beginning Doumbek
2:30-3:30 Intermediate Doumbek

Sarah Johansson Locke Dance workshop

7:00 Formal dance performances
8:00 on Open dance party!

Retreat Accommodations $20

(the pricing is ala carte. for instance the drum workshop, hafla, meal, retreat would be $70 ($65 advance reg.)

See the websites below for more information on Carmine and Sarah, and for descriptions of the workshops.

Contact Kevin ASAP to receive registration instructions to confirm your place
drummerspath(at.)yahoo.com

Jun. 21st, 2006 @ 01:10 pm Boston, MA Oct 8: Gothic Belly Dance!
This is just a hold the date type announcement, but I'm very pleased to be able to confirm that I am sponsoring gothic belly dancers Tempest and Ariellah for workshops and a gothic hafli on Sunday, October 8, in a location in metro Boston TBD.  Pretty much everything is to be determined at this point, including pricing, but there were some interested people when I floated the idea before, so I wanted to start getting the word out :-)
