Our next performance is at the Mediterranean Fantasy Festival on in West Seattle on Sunday, July 17. We are on at 3:00 pm. This festival features non-stop performances by troupes and soloists on TWO stages, and great shopping!

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 Middle Eastern dances 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, at the Western Washington Fair, the Northwest Folklife Festival, Arab Festival and TurkFest for Festal at Seattle Center; the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry (OMSI), and Rustycon, Norwescon and Westercon science fiction conventions.
