ANAR DANA: Seattle Project Weekend, Oct. 1-2, 2022
This is the last chance to join the new season of ANAR DANA Seattle!! We start with the basic building blocks of the dance styles in the repertoire. It's a great way for people from all over the world to get acquainted with these dance styles even if they are too far away to join ANAR DANA Seattle. We will be live and in-person at Studio Deep Roots, with a potential for a hybrid option. Here is our repertoire for the coming year:
Nailiyat dance from Algeria
Baladi, urban folkdance, Egypt
Bosnian songs and dances from the 3 ethnicities of Jajce and Travnik
Henna Celebration from Elazığ, Turkey
"Uzundara" from Armenia
Bandari from the Persian Gulf, Iran
Logari stop dance from Afghanistan
Cost: $220 per weekend with 10 participants.

October 8-9, 2022
11am-6pm (each day, includes 1 hour for lunch)
The Introductory Weekend is open to anyone who wants to acquaint themselves with Helene's work and the ANAR DANA Project. Intro attendees will view videos or photos of and try out several different dance styles from North Africa, the Middle East, the Balkans, Anatolia, the Caucasus, Iran, and Central Asia.
Attendees will also have the chance to ask any questions about the Project, its goals, and its procedures.
At the end of the weekend, attendees and Helene will pick seven dance styles -- one from each region -- that will form the basis for the Training Project.
Intro attendees are not required to join the Project, and the workshop offers an excellent survey of dance across the various regions represented.
