Got "Fesh"? - Albuquerque Events Photography

Under the direction of Michelle Morrison, Farfesha Belly Dance is a professional belly dancing company and instructional studio located in Albuquerque, New Mexico. If you're lucky you might catch them twirling, shimmying, and gyrating on a Friday night at Taaj Palace, a local Indian restaurant.

As the story goes, the Egyptian music historian, George Sawa,  spent the evening with the dance company and declared they were full of "joyous laughter." Hence the name Farfesha.  Since then, the adjective "Fesh" has made it's way into their vocabulary describing a dancer who is full of  that "on-stage high energy delight."
