Every third Friday of the month the Blue Monk (3341 SE Belmont) hosts the Offbeat Belly Dance collective, a club rocking, good timing, genre-defying gang of badass belly dancers.
This Friday, April 20, 2012 is no exception, and it’s an extra special show: Offbeat Belly Dance! Fun Fabulous FREE Fourth Anniversary Extravaganza!
Friends! Romans! Portlanders! Ninjas! Pirates! Miscreants! Hipsters! And all other players to be named later – Lend me your eyeballs!
Forsooth! This is a Very Special Invite to a Very Special Episode of Portland’s own Offbeat Belly Dance!
Our April show is going to be an awesome show. Why, you ask? Well, because they’re *always* awesome. Obviously! Psh… 😀
Because it’s our FOURTH ANNIVERSARY SPECTACULARRRRR! WOOOOOOOOOOOO!
Join Karissa, the Ringleader of Offbeat Belly Dance (pictured to the right), and the other fabulous dancers at the show Friday night.
Individually, the members of the Offbeat Belly Dance collective perform at shows throughout the Portland area, but on the 3rd Friday of the month they come together at the Blue Monk to perform in a rollicking belly dance revue. One of the things that makes it offbeat, is that the dancers choose whatever kind of music they like. Karissa tells me this has included traditional Middle Eastern music, zydeco, AC/DC, Strauss, The Pogues, hip hop, jazz, blues, Old Crow Medicine Show, the Spice Girls, and just about everything else.
The shows are free, and go from about 7pm until 9:30pm.
