Banat el Kamar sponsors monthly haflas between November and April, the first Saturday of every month (except January) at Lake Harriet Dance Center, 64th & Lyndale Av S. The dancers may be students, professionals, or anyone in between (soloists & group performances); all dancers and all styles are welcome.
If you want to watch, just show up. It is free, but we do pass the hat to pay the rent. Some seating is on the floor, so bring a cushion or folding chair if you like.
If you want to perform, let us know at least a day before the hafla. We want to be sure there is time for all the performers. We suggest that performances be about 5-6 minutes long. Drumming and social dancing after the performances.
NOTE: In December we will have a special Holiday Hafla at Four Seasons Dance Studio, 1637 Hennepin Avenue S in Minneapolis. In addition to great dancing we will offer refreshments and door prizes. The Holiday Hafla will start at 6:30 pm, admission $10. Please check back for further information.
