Why the “Lovely Dozen?”
Once upon a time, before there was a troupe or a stand-alone studio, there was a little store called 12 Houses where the first of our future troupe members became friends and began sharing our knowledge and passion for health and wellness through music and dance. While that store no longer exists, our name is an homage to our time with them, whether or not there are ever 12 of us on stage at any given time! In this way, our origins are always honored with us.
The Lovely Dozen provide classes, workshops, and performances for the Greater Grand Forks community and beyond. They have been seen at Regional Stage Shows, Art Fests, Charity and Multicultural Events. We love sharing the joy of Middle Eastern Dance and Culture with the world!
