More than 90 performers from Amira Dance Productions will participate in this year's show of cultural dance, called Dance Magic 2010. Here's what audience members will see Saturday night:
1) The show will open with a sultry and celebratory Bollywood dance depicting a flirtatious engagement and ending with wedding. Dancers will perform classical East Indian dances, street dances of India and even some break dancing.
2) The 90-minute production will feature traditional Middle Eastern dance (more commonly known as belly dancing), hula dancing by Amira's Aloha Dancers, American tribal style dancing, flamenco, tap and aerial acrobatics.
3) The entire cast will be on stage for the finale, a simulation of a street carnivale featuring samba dancing, colorful costumes and exotic music.
