Belly Dance With Habiba @ Arts Center of the Capital Region, 8/27/10

August 26th, 2010, 1:01 pm by Greg

Just last month, Nippertown’s premier belly dancer Habiba was strutting her stuff onstage at the Saratoga Performing Arts Center, shaking her hips with Sting during his encore of “Desert Rose.”

At 6:30pm on Friday in conjunction with this month’s Troy Night Out arts walk, Habiba will be conducting a free introductory workshop in the fine art of belly dancing at the Arts Center of the Capital Region in Troy.

Who knows? Maybe you could get good enough to cozy up to Sting the next time he passes through Albany…
