Shetland Arts is proud to present Azafran, an evening of Belly Dancing with Rocio Bolanos.  She will be performing at the Garrison theatre on Friday 18th February at 7.30.

Rocio is an experienced Belly dancer having danced professionally for over 13 years and has performed across Spain, the UK, Italy and Germany.  She has also worked as a choreographer and been involved in many television shows including Spanish series Manolito Gafotas.  Her Belly dancing is influenced by many styles and cultures including Bedouin, Andalusi, Egyptian and Lebanese.

Rocio currently lives in Shetland and is a very popular Belly dancing teacher.  Five of her students Robina Barton, Fiona Grieve, Stella Nort, Zoe Smith and Linda Wiseman will be taking part in the performance at the Garrison.

Rocio Bolanos said “I’m very happy to perform in Shetland again and in such a fantastic venue as the Garrison.  This show will be a special event full of colour and music from different cultures.  Also this year is especially exciting because some of my students are participating in it.  We’ve all had great fun preparing this performance and we’re all out to just enjoy it.”

Robina Barton said “It's great fun going to belly dancing classes - great music, great clothes and great exercise - just a feel good experience. Preparing for the performance has been a giggle and hopefully the audience will enjoy it as much as we do!"
