Danceable rhythms, daggers, hair tosses and so much fun!  Plus Arabic drum master David Metz, will be traveling from the far reaches of Seattle to play for us this evening!

Come early to enjoy a tasty beverage at the Firehouse Cafe before the doors open for the show at 6pm. The show will start right at 6:30pm in the beautiful Firehouse Performing Arts Center - an old firehouse turned small theatre - a short walk from the Historic Fairhaven District.

This evening will be a sparkling evening of raqs sharqi (oriental dance), fusion, and Iraqi dance; while our guest Toastmaster will share little bites of history and culture of the music and the dance.
