This month’s Tenant of the Month is….
Shimmering Sands Middle Eastern Dance
What we do:
The Shimmering Sands Dance Company explores the mystery and intrigue of the timeless and captivating art of belly dance.
We mainly focus on what is known as Modern Egyptian cabaret style of belly dance. We also learn and explore a variety of Middle Eastern dancing styles as well as their musical and cultural context.
We perform at a variety of shows, venues, and events throughout Logan and Salt Lake City. These include:
- Sandstorm – One of Shimmering Sands’ largest productions which showcases dancers from all over Utah who perform all different styles of belly dance. Join us Friday, May 18 at 7:30 in the USU TSC auditorium.
- Indian Oven Dance Night – Last Saturday of the month at 8:00 pm at the Indian Oven (April 28 & May 26)
- Annual Belly Dance Spring Fest – Largest belly dance festival in Utah
When we do it:
We offer beginning to advanced level classes as well as a performance troupe for students at the intermediate level and above. For more information, check out the Whittier schedule page, www.shimmeringsandsbellydance.com, or call 615-306-2654.
Come and join the fun and learn how to shimmy at our beginning ‘Basics of belly dance” class on Tuesdays at 7:00. There are no pre-requisites and the class is open to all. Classes are $75 for an 8-week session or drop-in and try it for $15 a class. Next session starts May 1st.
History with Whittier:
Shimmering Sands moved to the Whittier Community Center in the fall of 2006. We have enjoyed every minute of it since! We love the large class rooms, our fellow tenants, and the beauty of the historic building.
