Old School Seduction

Many cultural phenomena become tired and played out over time. One notable exception is the 5,000-year-old art form of belly dancing, which has survived and thrived, thanks in no small part to its seamless fusion of dance, culture and sexuality, as well as the continual innovations of its modern interpreters. Midwestern belly dancers from Belly Dance United use their hypnotizing hips to bring back to life several gone-but-not-forgotten seductresses of the past, including Marilyn Monroe, Josephine Baker, Guinevere and Mata Hari during Enchantress, a 7:30 p.m. show at Union Station’s H&R Block City Stage (30 West Pershing Road). Tickets are $10 in advance, $12 at the door, or $7 in groups of 10 or more. See unionstation.org/enchantress.html or call 816-460-2020.— Angela Lutz
