Learn Turkish Rom Style with Aya of Istanbul

Starting this Saturday, September 10, Aya of Istanbul will be teaching a new class at Pera Dance.  From 12:00-1:00 p.m. every Saturday, Aya will share the basics of Turkish Rom-style belly dance.  This style is earthy, flirty, energetic, and steeped in tradition -- and this is your only chance to learn it from a dancer who grew up in Istanbul, Turkey, surrounded by Roma culture and dance! 

Whether you want to put together a Romani-influenced choreography, learn new social dancing options, or spice up your Turkish Orientale performances with some "Gypsy"-style moves, Aya's new class will enrich your dance practice.  And Aya will explain what all those gestures really do -- and don't -- mean!  So come to Pera on Saturdays and throw your belly with Aya.  Contact Aya or Pera Dance for the latest deals on class cards!

Sema Yildiz, legendary Turkish dancer (and a teacher and friend of Aya's) performs an impromptu Turkish Rom duet with Ozgen, another well-known Turkish performer.
