Next Friday November 3 at San Jose City Hall, Petra and Hiya will be dancing with fire at the Playa-to-Paseo Sonic Runway Grand Opening. A really beautiful art piece from last year’s Burning Man is being installed there! We’re not sure about the exact time (though it should be after dark), or how long our performance will be, or if we’ll also do non-fire ATS bellydance. We do know there will be other performers and probably other Burning Man-related artists. It should be a fun event — and the Sonic Runway is really worth checking out!
Sunday November 12, we will be celebrating all our “Scorpio birthdays” with a dinner and dance performance at Menara Moroccan Restaurant in San Jose. If you’ve never eaten at Menara it is so worth checking out! The decor is beautifully exotic, and Moroccan food is very yummy! We will be hosting a 2-hour evening and will be welcoming some other guest dancers to join us.
Sunday December 3at 5pm will be our Christmas in the Park performance — we’ll be on the Community Stage in Plaza de Cesar Chavez in downtown San Jose. Grab a hot cocoa, admire the kitschy fun which is San Jose’s traditional Christmas in the Park event, and watch us dance!
More details for each of these events are on our Facebook page — please “like” us! Also, please feel free to share all these events, and to invite friends to join us!
The August Hafladira was a great one for House of Inanna — we had six students performing along with troupe members Petra, Cherie, & Hiya! Lisa, Karin, Kali, CeCe, Bambi, and Avnija all danced, some for the very first time. Great job, ladies!
One of the songs we danced to was Jain’s marvelous “Makeba.” Enjoy!
House of Inanna was very proud to be part of the June HaflAdira at Adira’s Dance & Costume! Performers were troupe members Petra, Hiya, and Tamara, while students Collie, Lisa, and Maggie also participated.
India Joze’ New Rooz Persian New Year celebration is always a pleasure for the House of Inanna troupe to dance at, and this year was no exception. Here are a few shots of the dancers, as well as of the beautiful holiday ritual table.
House of Inanna performed at the Crepe Place on Saturday the 11th — it was a beautiful day and a lovely dance! Two of the old hands, Petra and Tamara, led two of the students, Maggie and Kali. A good time was had by all, and the audience was most appreciative! Best of all, one of our kind audience members was good enough to share two photos she took with us. Thank you so much, kind but unnamed audience member! 🙂
Then, after our sets were completed, we also took a few shots of each other. Enjoy!
