Middle Eastern dance, food, and henna body art by artist Angela Skrade comes to the Midwest. Mistress of ceremonies, Cassandra Shore, the artistic director and Master belly dance instructor, kept everything moving and fun. Unfortunately, she did not perform for the large crowd, as she is on "injured reserve," but did wow them with some sample "shimmies." Jawaahir Dance Company and Cassandra School level 3 students performed dances, and Monique, Toha and Shari did solos. PHOTOS BY ED NEATON
