This week, we bring you the GoldRush Belly Dance Edition, a Special night featuring performances by participants in this week’s GoldRush Belly Dance intensive. This is one of a few stops on the GoldRush trail bringing dancers from near and far to participate in workshops with some of SF’s pioneers in Tribal and Fusion belly dance.
Joining us this night will be instructors Carolena Nericcio, Rita Alderucci, Kami Liddle and Jill Parker watching and giving critique to each performer, while you – the audience – get to cheer them on.
We will have an opening happy hour from 9-10pm, 2 sets of performances starting at 10pm, and open dancing with DJ Suresh and Underground Nomads’ resident bartender Demitria pouring your drinks all night.
