Dancing and Darjeeling

Belly dance is derived from folk dances and traditions of Middle Eastern and North African cultures. Like any dance form, it is great cardiovascular exercise. Find out more at the Tisbury Senior Center’s Tea and Talk on Oct. 24 at 2 p.m. The Vineyard’s own Belly Dance and Revue will dance and talk about the history of belly dance while you enjoy cookies and tea. Dancers are Pat Szucs, Betsy Smith, Jamie O’Gorman, Suzanna Nickerson, Shela Rayyan and more.

The senior center is on Pine Tree Road in Vineyard Haven. This fun and festive event welcomes all ages. There is no charge. Reservations are appreciated at 508-696-4205, Monday through Friday.
