I’ve found out that a local long-time dancer, dance student and hafla organiser, Irene Hogg, is organising a “Hafla for Haiti” to raise funds for Save the Children‘s work in Haiti.  The hafla will be on Sunday the 21st Feb at Revolution on Chambers St.

Details of cost, times, performers etc haven’t been released yet (I’m not sure if it’s been sorted out yet), but I’ll put updates here and in the Edinburgh Bellydance Calendar if/when I find out more.  The plan is to have a variety of types of dance, including Indian, African, Salsa & Tango (in addition to bellydancing of course).  There’s a facebook event page has been set up here, and also a new Scotland Bellydance facebook group has been set up here by Martina Kyriazi a locally based dancer and teacher. UPDATE 11/2: I’ve heard from Suzie’s blog that doors will open at 7pm and tickets will be £10 on the door.

So if you’re free, come along, enjoy yourself & help raise money for a good cause!
