HARVARD – Harvard Diggins Library, 900 E. McKinley St., will showcasing an entertaining and colorful event at 2 p.m. April 21.

Troupe Namaste is a sisterhood of women from the area who, as an ethnic dance troupe, study and perform the art of Middle Eastern dance as well as many other styles of world dance.

This group of dancers decided on the name “Namaste” because it means, “The Divine in me blesses and honors the Divine in you.” This is an appropriate name for a group of dancers who come together in the spirit of collaboration and love of the dance.

This troupe has been led by director Jenny Hennek since the troupe was formed in 2000. The women show a variety of dance styles, including authentic Middle Eastern dances, world style dances such as Turkish, Gypsy Rom, Tribal and Oriental Pop, and comedy, often using veils, canes, finger cymbals and swords in their dances.

No registration is required for this free and family-friendly event.

For information, call the library at 815-943-4671 or visit www.harvard-diggins.org or www.namastedance.com.
