SCC to Host Middle Eastern Dance Student Recital May 19

May 16, 2012

The St. Charles Community College Continuing Education Department is hosting a Middle Eastern dance student recital at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, May 19, in the Fine Arts Building theater at SCC. This event is free and open to the public.

The recital is performed by students of instructor Heather Ward’s belly dance classes at SCC, as well as her “Madrasat Nisaa” student dancers from her personal studio.

“The performance is entertaining, as well as educational,” Ward said. “The student dancers showcase the vibrant, beautiful art of belly dance, as well as other traditional dances of Egypt.”

The students have been rehearsing for this performance since February, when classes began. Ward teaches five different levels of belly dance classes on Saturdays at SCC. Summer 2012 classes begin June 9. To register, visit
