About the Troupe

Our next performance is on Sunday, February 9, 2020 at Kalia Indian Cuisine in downtown Greenwood at the monthly Bellydance Showcase. The show starts at 6 pm, get in early to get a table and order some fabulous Indian food and dine while you watch the show.

Your event can be enlivened by a performance of lively folkloric dances from cultures of the Middle East, American belly dance, or innovative fusion dances. Shahrazad Ensemble’s grace, skill and sheer joy in the dance never fails to charm an audience.

Shahrazad Dance Ensemble performs folkloric dances from countries of the Middle Eastern, based on dance of the Levant, Egypt, North Africa, Turkey and the Persian Gulf. We also perform modern Egyptian and American Belly Dance, and imaginative and entertaining choreography to fusion music.

Shahrazad Dance Ensemble is one of Seattle’s premier performing troupes. The troupe has appeared at dance shows throughout the Pacific Northwest: numerous appearances at: Northwest Folklife Festival; all of the Arab Festivals held at Seattle Center; TurkFest at Seattle Center; the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry (OMSI); Rustycon, Norwescon and Westercon science fiction conventions.
