Belly Dance Night something special for school

Date Posted: 2012-06-15

It’s not every day that students have an opportunity for a non-traditional learning experience, but it’s happening Saturday, June 30th at the Global Village International Center and Café in Ginowan City.

The special event is a Belly Dance Night featuring Aimee Machiels, an international performer and teacher trained in Hula, Classical Orissi Dance, Yoga and Belly Dance. Born and raised in Hawaii, the quarter-Okinawan entertainer’s mother and grandmother are Okinawan, from Urasoe City. That’s only the beginning of Aimee’s roots; her great-grandfather is the famous Majikina Yuko Sensei, designated the honor of Living Treasure for Okinawa Dance Arts and Kumiodori Classical Play.

Aimee’s belly dance troupe performs around Okinawa, but has also spanned the globe in exotic locales like Costa Rica, India, Italy, Rwanda and the United States. The Global Village language school, which offers classes in Chinese, Korean, Spanish, French, and Italian as well as English, both in groups and private one-on-one settings decided the students needed a special incentive. Owner Eriko Kuwahata seized upon the excitement of dance.

The Global Village International Center and Café doors open for the show at 8 p.m. on the 30th, with the show starting at 8:30 p.m. Advance tickets are ¥1,800, while tickets at the door are ¥2,000. Tickets for kids under ten are half price.

The Global Village International Center and Café is located at 2-2-3 Futenma in Ginowan City. From Camp Foster Legion Gate, turn right onto Route 330 and then left at the intersection in front of Futenma Shrine, and then right again at the traffic light before the MCAS Futenma back gate. Global Village is on the right about 200 meters from the intersection on the right.
