Okay so I know this party was over a month ago, but  it was so much fun, I just had to write a bit about it.

First of all Anahid Sofian is a legend and if you’re ever in NYC you really need to take class with her! (Anahid’s info.)

She also happens to throw a great party. The incredible, dynamic, passionate (and a million other adjectives) Aszmara was the special guest artist and she literally blew my mind as usual. In addition there were several AMAZING dancers including Najma, Teodora, Uza Mitra, and  Zobeida (interview with Zobeida coming soon!).

Of course all of this was topped off with great live music. Nabil Bekkali played the keyboard and Richard Khuzami was on drums – he’s awesome by the way and a great teacher 🙂

Anahid ended the night with some Armenian line dancing which was great – just a fun night all around 🙂

Hopefully more fun events to come!

Enjoy your Friday!

Inspired by the dances Anahid Sofian videotaped at the Moroccan Dance Festival in 1974, “Morocco” was the first dance she choreographed for her newly—formed company. The company debuted the dance at their inaugural performance in 1979 at the Casa Galicia (Webster Hall) NYC in 1979. Anahid was awarded a NY CAPS grant for choreography for the dance, which the company performed again at Carnegie Hall in 1980 at the NY Ethnic Dance Festival.
