Description

Your Passport to Global Dance in the Bay Area...

An evening of dance, live music, culture, and community featuring two talented choreographers and teachers from the ODC family: Jill Parker, internationally acclaimed belly dance artist, and Tania Santiago, celebrated Afro-Brazilian choreographer.

Jill Parker and the Foxglove Sweethearts perform "Unfolding". With live music by Turkish and Balkan band MWE, the bass drum calls forth shimmies, the clarinet begs for sensual hip twists, and the earthy melodies of the zurna drive the deep rolls and flutters Tribal Belly Dance is known for.

Tania Santiago is the founder of Aguas Dance Company (formerly known as Aguas da Bahia). They will perform "Movendo con Capoeira" featuring eight dancers and four musicians on traditional instruments: the berimbau, agogó, surdo, and tumbadora (aka conga). “Movendo con Capoeira” showcases the two sides of capoeira – as a martial art and a dance form – woven together with traditional Afro-Brazilian dance.

Dance and Diaspora spotlights live music and dance -- with local food vendors to keep the party going!
