Bellies are bully
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.
