With a shake of the hip and a rattle of the precisely fitted costume, audiences are set to be entranced tonight when an international belly dance master will perform in Bangkok.
Canadian Hadia will articulate her hips during the ‘Dream Belly Dance’ at Dream Hotel tonight at 9pm.
Held in collaboration with Rumpuree World Dance Studio, the "Dream Belly Dance" event will take place at the Flava Restaurant and Bar of Dream Hotel Bangkok on Sukhumvit Soi 15, starting at 9pm.
