We perform in a legacy performance via the magic of the Wayback Machine, at Hasani’s virtual Halloween Scream Variety Show on Saturday, October 30 at 6 pm. You can watch on Zoom or on YouTube. Lots of other artists appearing, too! It will be a fun show.
Our troupe has a lot of history and we’re going to share our History Project. The troupe has been in numereous shows, workshop recitals, neighborhood festivals, folklife festivals, haflas, and club performances in the greater Seattle area in the past 43 years.

To see some history in still photos, visit our Gallery. We’ll be adding photos to that collection.
We perform lively folkloric dances from cultures of the Middle East, American belly dance, and innovative fusion dances. Shahrazad Ensemble’s grace, skill and sheer joy in the dance never fails to charm an audience.
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.
