Eastern promise

A MEETING of the Ripley and District University of the Third Age was given an air of exotic mystery when one member gave a demonstration of eastern dancing.

Angela Dannette Boyle performed veil and belly dances at the AGM of the group, which met to outline this year’s events which include a visit to The Chinese Circus in Buxton, and a tour of Bletchley Park, near Milton Keynes.

Secretary Tony Stephens said: “Angela regularly performs at carnivals, charitable events, colleges, galas, festivals, restaurants, universities and weddings. She went on to perform a belly dance to show that the movements were very feminine, elegant and graceful. The routine and performance was both dramatic and exciting.”
