Belly Dancing with Kae Montgomery
this Saturday 2/8/14, 1-3 p.m.!
(Download flyer & share with others HERE)
Belly Dancing is a Western name for a traditional West Asian/Middle Eastern form of dance. Though the name of the dance refers to the abdominal area, hips sway, shoulders shake, and arms and hands move about in a fluid motion. This low-impact cardiovascular dance is a great way for everyone to strengthen muscles throughout the body!
Join us at the African American Art & Culture Complex located at 762 Fulton Street
, San Francisco, CA 94102 (Muni access & free parking).
No need to register. Just show up! You get $277 value health screening and if you dance, collect $10 in carrot cash to spend at participating farmers' markets (for kids with diabetes and all adults who participate). Health screening optional, but needed to get the carrot cash reward. We suggest a $10 donation at the door to keep this going, if you can afford.
Please arrive promptly at 1 p.m. for check-in (or 1:15 p.m. if you are not doing the health screening). Bring water, a snack if you need it, and comfortable shoes. Have a question? Call Theresa at 1-877-765-4386 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Not in San Francisco? Join us virtually via live stream at 1:30 p.m. by clicking here.

Can You Bring Water & Snacks to Share?
It is important to stay hydrated while having fun on the dance floor. Dance Out Diabetes is looking for volunteers to donate and bring water bottles and healthy snacks for participants at the dance. If you can bring to share, great! Otherwise, the water fountain is 3 floors down, so please bring water for yourself. Thanks!
