If you were strolling or driving down N. Huron Street in Ypsilanti Friday evening you were in for a treat, as N. Huron was alive with an exquisite display of live belly dancing performed by local belly dance organizations. Spectators crowded onto the sidewalk on Huron Street were able to witness the greatest dance party the streets of Ypsilanti have ever seen. The event was hosted by Ypsilantique and First Fridays Ypsi.

Belly dance troupes participating included Ypsilanti based Unveiled Belly Dance, Ann Arbor based Karma Belly dance, Oakland County based Mandali, and Ypsilanti student troupe Mechates.

 Angela, of Ypsilanti's Unveiled Belly Dance told me that the organization has been around for twenty years and that they perform at schools and events throughout the state of Michigan.

The dancing was fantastic, fun, uplifting and brought a colorful splash of grace, beauty and elegance to N. Huron Street in Ypsi. What else could you ask for on a Friday night?

  1. Dear editor,
    I would like to make a correction, "Mechates" is actually "M├ęchantes Femmes" an adult dance troupe based out of Washtenaw Community College.

    Thank you!
