The Lovely Dozen Troupe has been dancing their way through the summer with appearances at the Grand Cities Art Fest, Brigid’s House in Park Rapids, MN and World Refugee Day at the Farmers Market in downtown Grand Forks. The weather was a little cloudy and windy at Art Fest, but we had a wonderful time performing and leading demos with the kids. Rain or shine the event was a great success and we greatly appreciate the opportunity to share our art form with our community!
Lovely Dozen Greenway Dance Day!
July has been pretty calm with performances and events, but mark your calendars for Dancing on the Greenway on Saturday, July 26 from 1:30-3:30 pm! Come join the Lovely Dozen for a FREE, relaxed, family friendly day of dance along the Red River Greenway in Downtown Grand Forks. We will be setting up a cozy canopy for enjoying vending (including henna!), music and dance, all provided and instructed by members of the Lovely Dozen Middle Eastern Dance Troupe. All ages and experiences welcome! Come to watch, come to shop, come to play along with the music on drums provided for guests to jam or grab a hipscarf to dance with us! Should we find ourselves in the rain that day, the event will be moved to the Lovely Dozen Studios, but otherwise look for us across the street from Widman’s Chocolates along the Greenway!
New Troupe Member!
Also this month the Lovely Dozen auditioned its first new member since 2013! We are so excited to have Maddy Salyers in our dance family! Congratulations!
