Jehan's GODDESSDANCE is a mesmerizing celebration of the
female body and of life itself.  Bellydancing, one of the oldest
recorded dances, is featured because it transcends its Middle Eastern
origin to bring delight to Westerners.  In swirls of colors and
costumes of silk and sequins, undulating bodies perform dances of
rituals, folklore, birth, death, and worship to ancient music updated
with saucy rhythms and sassy lyrics and chants.  Bellydancers are
accompanied by singers, musicians, and drummers from around the
world.  Throw in a few veils, swords, and snakes, and
GODDESSDANCE becomes magical, mystical, and mind-blowing! 
It's a fantasy history lesson that you won't want to miss and you
won't easily forget.  Put this one on your list, and go early.  You just
might want to see it more than once.
