Bellydancers Come To Ysleta

On Saturday July 16, 2011 Zakia Hamwee and Casey Weekley performed the traditional cabaret and ethnic style bellydance to about 40 library patrons. Taught by her father of Syrian decent, Zakia has been dancing all of her life. Her daughter Casey, also from  an early age, gave her first performance at age six. They have been in El Paso since 1999 teaching and performing in workshops, festivals and competitions.  The ladies have also taken their show to Boston, New Jersey, and Orlando, to name a few of their performance locations. Patrons of the library all enjoyed the Arabic music and the authentic bellydance technique.
