with Andalusian musicians El Niño Manuel & El Gori

Be transported by the blended rhythms of intricate footwork, the guitar, vocals, and palmas (hand claps) in this spectacular performance featuring renowned Andalusian musicians El Niño Manuel and El Gori. Internationally-acclaimed flamenco performer, instructor, and choreographer Danica Sena explores the relationship of musician and dancer while showcasing the unique energy and connection that occurs between artists who have worked together for decades.


Experience a strong and visceral side of belly dance, from classical Baladi folksongs paired with earthy, grounded belly dance, to the contrasting raw and unbridled Zaar trance ritual, a ceremonial dance performed by an entire community. Jill Parker is an award-winning and internationally-acclaimed instructor, choreographer, and the founder of the modern Tribal Fusion belly dance movement. In her second Dance and Diaspora performance, Jill Parker and her troupe, The Foxglove Sweethearts, will focus on the music and dance of South Egypt.
