Young women of Santa Fe can blos­som in Pome­gran­ate Stu­dios’ Stu­dent Sa­lon. The sa­lon rep­re­sents the hard work and ded­i­ca­tion of girls ages 15 to 18 who are in Pome­gran­ate’s teen­men­tor­ship af­ter-school pro­gram and will be per­form­ing a va­ri­ety of vi­brant tribal and tra­di­tional Mid­dle East­ern belly dances. For stu­dents, it’s the cul­mi­na­tion of nur­tured pos­i­tiv­ity; for the teach­ers, it’s an op­por­tu­nity to see the flow­er­ing of care­fully cul­ti­vated con­fi­dence in young girls through ac­tive artis­tic ap­pre­ci­a­tion. Th­ese are the ob­jec­tives of Pome­gran­ate’s S.E.E.D.s (self-es­teem, empowerment, and ed­u­ca­tion through dance) pro­gram. Founder and di­rec­tor Myra Krien es­tab­lished S.E.E.D.s in 2001 with sup­port from many lo­cal busi­nesses. The Pome­gran­ate Stu­dent Sa­lon takes place at the Rai­l­yard Per­for­mance Space (1611 Paseo de Per­alta) at 7 p.m. at Sun­day, Jan. 31. Tick­ets are $5 at the door. For more in­for­ma­tion, call Pome­gran­ate Stu­dios at 986-6164.
