Belly dancers will be a treat for pa­trons

Central and North Burnett Times - - NEWS -

BIGGEN­DEN Show pa­trons are in for a treat when the Gypsy Lounge Bel­ly­dancers per­form as part of Satur­day night’s en­ter­tain­ment.

Sharon Sey­mour has just ar­rived home to Bund­aberg af­ter five weeks of in­ten­sive work­shops in Amer­ica, study­ing Amer­i­can Tribal Style danc­ing.

She said ATS evolved in San Fran­cisco and in­volves a blend of bel­ly­dance, Gypsy tra­di­tions and fla­menco.

“It is danced as a tribe, and has cues built into the moves to en­able peo­ple to fol­low a leader and ex­change lead­er­ship,” she said.

“It is rel­a­tively new to the coun­try and there are only lit­tle pock­ets of groups around Aus­tralia.”

Group mem­bers will per­form two 15 minute seg­ments at 5.30pm with Amer­i­can Tribal Bel­ly­dance and then 6.15pm with Tribal In­fu­sion.

Any­one in­ter­ested in classes or work­shops can look on her web­site at th­e­gyp­sy­lounge.com.au.

Ms Sey­mour is the only per­son in the re­gion who of­fers classes in this genre.

Biggen­den Show So­ci­ety pres­i­dent Adam Shailer is hop­ing the pre­dicted weather fore­cast of heavy falls of rain will hold off un­til Mon­day.

“We do need the rain but not this week­end,” he said.
