We will perform at the Emerald Extravaganza Benefit Hafla on Saturday, February 24, in Arlington, Washington. The location is the Mirkwood Cafe! Come by and see us, and lots of other dance performances! The show starts at 1:00 pm and goes through the day to about 7:00 pm. We’ll be on at about 3:00 pm. For more information, here’s the Facebook Event.
Our troupe has a lot of history and we’re sharing our History Project. The troupe has been in numerous shows, workshop recitals, neighborhood festivals, folklife festivals, haflas, and club performances in the greater Seattle area in the past 45 years.

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.

The troupe has appeared at dance shows and festivals throughout the Pacific Northwest, including appearances at: Northwest Folklife Festival; Seattle Arab Festivals held at Seattle Center; TurkFest at Seattle Center; all 25 years of the Mediterranean Fantasy Festival; the long-ago Marymoor Heritage Festival; the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry (OMSI); Rustycon, Norwescon and Westercon science fiction conventions.
