Forget Santa’s belly-jiggle and spend an evening watching the canes, zils and veils of Asmira’s School of Oriental Dance as they take the stage Dec. 15.

The belly dancing elves are ready to celebrate the season and enchant audiences with their annual Christmas recital this weekend.

More than 40 dancers of all skill-levels from beginners to professionals will perform a variety of styles from classical raqs sharki to folkloric tribal fusion dances.

It all takes place at the Metro Studio Theatre, 1411 Quadra St. at 8 p.m. Tickets are available in advance for $16, and for $18 at the door. Reduced ticket prices for children and seniors are available.

Advance tickets are available at Lyle’s Place, 770 Yates St., Cleopatra’s Bedroom, 654 Fort St., and Asmira’s Studio, 746A, Yates St.

Email Asmira for more information at asmiradance@shaw.ca.
