On Monday night locals were treated to ‘serenity, beauty and intensity’ in the display of belly dancing given by Elizabeth and The Elysian Belly Dancers.

After a two-course meal, as coffees were being served, the troupe arrived to entertain guests.

“The professionalism and skill these wonderful dancers displayed was phenomenal,” said one attendee.

“And there were many of us in the audience who learned a great deal and were perhaps persuaded to think again about many of the stereotypes that pervade this art form.”
