If the only dance you're getting is on TV, you need to get out of the house. Twirl over to the Creamery District, where Redwood Raks World Dance Studio is feting its 10th anniversary with a Spring Equinox Dance Celebration on Saturday, March 24 at 7 p.m. ($10, $8 students and seniors, $5 kids under 12).
Have a cupcake and settle in for a tour of dance styles from a myriad of cultures. Expect energetic performances from Company of African Dance Arcata, high stepping from Eva Brena's Hip Hop Kids and the swirling skirts of Ya Habibi Dance Company, including special guest Alexandra Stock, a Ya Habibi alum who's back in town from performing internationally. More African influence comes via Brazilian dance when Samba Na Chuva takes the floor, and Humboldt Lao Dancers and Hoaloha Pumehana bring the traditional music and movement of Laos and Hawaiian hula, respectively.
And, of course, Shoshanna's Fairy Dancers rep for the magical land of sparkly rainbows. We defy you to make it through all those performances without doing a little chair dancing yourself.
