It occurs to me that some (probably most) people reading the above post might not know what a hafla is.
Haflas are basically bellydance parties. There are varying degrees of formality with these parties, ranging from big stage shows starring professional dancers to groups of people dancing together ,with performances from students (and sometimes professionals) from nearby areas. Class performances, solo performances, duets and groups. Egyptian/cabaret style, tribal, fusion. one performer will get up and do their bit, then the next, etc. There's usually a half-time break for more casual dancing to music and sometimes a buffet is put on at this interval. Then there are more performances and another time to dance at the end.
The proceeds from the ticket sales generally go to charity. Sometimes a local one, sometimes something close to the organiser's heart.
Thank you Sonjirey and Joey for putting this event together....
