Lori Henry is a writer, actor and dance anthropologist based in North Vancouver, Canada. She currently writes the travel, culture and lifestyle blog, Lori's List: More than Travel (www.LorisList.ca).
Lori uses dance as an access point to learn about diverse cultures. Her fascination with the subject began with Polynesian dance lessons when she was two years old, learning how to chant in Hawaiian, sing and dance Maori kapa hakas, and shake her hips to Tahitian drums not long after she had learned to walk. She also trained in various other dance forms and played competitive ringette (similar to hockey).
Lori has spent the last 10 years working as a freelance writer focusing on travel and culture. Her work has been published all over the world in publications like Readers Digest, Air Canada's enRoute, WestJet's up! magazine, Western Living, British Columbia Magazine, Spa, FLARE, West, USAToday.com, and Fodor's, to name a few.
Lori holds a master's degree in Dance Anthropology with distinction from Roehampton University (London, UK). She conducted her fieldwork with the Whirling Dervishes of West London and her dissertation was titled, "Towards a Non-Hegemonic Anthropology of Dance."

Jordan: A Different Middle East
by Lori Henry
One of the most historically potent places in the world, Jordan is often overlooked in favour of its neighbours, Egypt and Israel. Fortunately for travellers, the fewer amount of tourists makes this small country an enchanting place to visit.
