Live music, dancing and food – Turkish style!
Half a world away from Turkey, Murat Demirtas is sharing his knowledge of Turkish style belly dance—with a twist. Murat’s style is rooted in Istanbul and incorporates a unique modern flare, which bridges the distant worlds of Turkey and Hawaii.
This night will take you on a journey and reveal the exotic tastes and sounds of Turkey. Members of Murat’s performance group Turkish Wings and students from his belly dance classes at Still and Moving Center will help Murat create this bridge. Live Turkish music will make you want to dance, and the performances will leave you filled with joy. Special guest performances from others who love and teach belly dance will round out this exclusive international journey.
You can expect Turkish Nights to be entertaining, joyful, and include a feast of epicurean delights.
Come join Still and Moving Center on a magic carpet ride, around the world, to the heart of Istanbul!
Members of Murat’s performance group Turkish Wings, students from his belly dance classes at Still & Moving Center and featured guest artists will help Murat create this bridge through storytelling and demonstration.
Join and have fun.
