Rakkassah Belly Dance Productions

Hi Ladies, already it’s time for us to invite you all to our Lowton Autumn Hafla

Sunday 16th October, 2011 1 – 5.30pm

We are at the usual great venue, Lowton Labour Club, giving all you lovely dancers the opportunity to display your talents through the excellent and varied performances we have come to expect.

We’ve got dance space suitable for solos up to large groups,
our renowned Mediterranean style buffet by Rent-A-Chef,
shop till you drop with a glittering array of goodies on the Bazaars
and a reasonably priced pay bar.

Bring along your drum or other instrument to join in a live jamming session for everyone to have a jiggle along to.
If you know a community style dance, other than a Dabke, please bring your music so we can all have a go.

Please make sure you supply all details we require and that it is legible.
Please note if you do not enclose a SAE we will keep your tickets at the door in an effort to reduce costs.
