Tapestry Dance Project is very selective about performance opportunities.
We do not perform authentic Middle Eastern dance. We respect that beautiful style and the culture from which it came. We will not represent it at cultural events.
We only accept paid professional performances that interest or inspire us.
We will donate performances at haflas, festivals and benefits which have meaning for us. We do not dance for exposure, nor do we pay to dance. We will not accept a free performance opportunity for which a professional dancer would otherwise be hired for pay.

Add an exotic and mysterious flavor to your next event! Improvisational fusion bellydance weaves elements of the ritual and folkloric dances of the Middle East, Northern Africa, India, and Spain into a rich and diverse fabric. Our troupe of dancers create a majestic spectacle with swirling veils, ringing finger cymbals, and slow, snake-like movements under swords or baskets balanced on our heads. We exchange lead and follow roles in a unique group improvisational format, supported and enhanced by the exotic traditional rhythms and haunting melodies of our live musicians.
We have a two dancer minimum.
