We would love you all to join us for our next FireWater Show: Strength & Surrender on Sunday 10th December 2017. An evening of Tribal and Contemporary Belly dance and live music with Samantha Emmanuel, FireWater resident dancers and very special guests at The Hackney Attic in London.
‘We hold the lion’s paw whenever we dance….’ Hafiz
Strength and Surrender explores and celebrates the two opposing and intrinsic energies inherent within the dance, and the gifts they bring to us. Watch them weave; their aesthetics, their feel, the pull and rush of their polarity, their beautiful merging, and their power. ‘Nothing is so strong as gentleness. Nothing is so gentle as real strength’ ~ Saint Francis de Sales
