The premise of the production – “it’s not what you think” – allows us to shine a light on some misconceptions around dances from the Near and Middle East. We will feature dances from Saudi Arabia, Andalusia (Spain), Egypt and Greece, and dance styles from American Cabaret, Egyptian Folk and Street Dances, Arab-Flamenco fusion and Greek Rebetiko. Our dancers range in age from 24 to 67, costuming will match the styles and is not all bare-bellied and beaded. I have attached a graphic with our logo and all the performance info.

Here is our “pitch” from the program-
“What does “belly dance” mean to you? Do you think of dancers training for years to hone their craft, often traveling long distances to improve movement vocabulary and increase cultural knowledge? To those of us in the know, belly dance is a World dance and a world class art form based in the folk dances of the Middle East. Learn the real story through narrative and dance showcasing several styles, along with a little “herstory” of belly dance pioneers..”
We are an all ages show at the Unicorn-Jerome with performances on the 20-21, 25-26 and 28.
