The second season of our Dance and Dine event is on! A belly dance class followed by a delicious Egyptian meal. JOIN US Double the fun in one event. Koshary by Misteka is hosting an event where eating healthy (Hearty plant-based) and staying active is both fun and delicious! Join us for a unique Egyptian experience through Belly Dance, also known as “Oriental Dance”.
The dance consists of complex movements of the torso that focuses on core & hip muscles and is generally performed barefoot, thought by many to emphasize the intimate physical connection between the dancer, her expression, and Mother Earth. This low impact exercise can help relieve back and joint pain, increase bone density, help lose weight and reduce stress levels.
After class, you get to enjoy a warm bowl of Koshary; The national dish of Egypt. A fiber and protein-packed meal that is sure to pleasantly surprise your palate.
