Nashville Indiana Shimmy and Shake

07:30 pm
Brown County Playhouse
http://www.browncountyplayhouse.org

Different Drummer Belly Dancers mix traditional belly dancing and modern music, borrowing from Folkloric, Cabaret, American Tribal, and Fusion styles of belly dance. They believe the power, beauty, joy, and grace of belly dance can be expressed in our modern 20th and 21st century music. Audiences of all ages love it! In 2003, Margaret Lion decided to honor her passion for belly dancing to rock’n’roll and formed her own troupe. Since she was different and wanted her troupe to be different than those dancing around her, she named her troupe Different Drummer Belly Dancers (DDBD). The name is inspired from the Thoreau quote “If a man does not keep pac with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer.” Beer & wine sold in the auditorium.
