Your Passport to Global Dance in the Bay Area

An evening of dance, live music, culture, and community featuring two talented choreographers and teachers from the ODC family: Jill Parker, internationally acclaimed belly dance artist, and Tania Santiago, celebrated Afro-Brazilian choreographer.

Jill Parker and The Foxglove Sweethearts are collaborating with local eclectic Turkish and Balkan folk band, MWE. The bass drum calls forth shimmies, the clarinet begs for sensual hip twists and figure 8's, and the strong, earthy melodies of the double-reeded zurna drives the deep belly rolls and flutters tribal belly dance is known for.

Tania Santiago's Movendo con Capoeira puts Brazil's most enduring cultural symbol center stage, diving into its lesser known dance components of Capoeira that express the struggles of the African Diaspora to end racism and oppression. Weaving together Afro-Brazilian folkloric dance, pure Capoeira, and live drumming, the work creates a full portrait of this amazing, physical art form.
