St. Thomas, USVI, October 8, 2013: On Saturday, October 19, 2013, the Reichhold Center for the Arts will feature the Sahar Dance Company, a world-renowned troupe of belly dancers that specializes in the Egyptian style of belly dance. This colorful and exotic performance will also feature live music from acclaimed Tabla player Amir Sofi. Sahar’s stirring presentation is the perfect follow up to the sensational and unforgettable performance by Sheila E. that kicked off Reichhold’s 35th anniversary season and received rave reviews.

Audiences will be mesmerized by the hypnotic movements perfected by the Sahar Dance Company’s fifteen member troupe. The dance routines, while sensuous and electrifying are still suitable for all ages. Prior to their scheduled performance, the Sahar Dance Company will also host a free belly dance workshop for young girls’ grades 6th-12th the morning of Friday, October 18th at the Reichhold Center. Participants will learn basic belly dance movements as well as the history and culture of belly dance; a rare opportunity that shouldn’t be missed. Reichhold will offer this free dance workshop in partnership with VI Council for the Arts as part of the Reichhold Center’s Arts in Education Program.

For more information on the Sahar Dance performance or workshop please contact Ian M. Turnbull at Reichhold Center for the Arts via email ian.turnbull@uvi.edu or 340-693-1554. To purchase tickets contact the Reichhold Box Office at 340-693-1559. Limited press passes are available.
