Our repertoire includes but is not limited to Raqs Sharqi and Folkloric dances of Egypt, Turkish Oryantal, and Lebanese style of Belly Dance. Our dances also include the use of props such as swords, canes and veils. Traditional music and costumes are used in our performances.
Danza Romani (Gypsy Dance) is a performance group dedicated to performing, as authentically as possible, improvisational Romani (Gypsy) dances from Turkey, Spain, Russia and the Balkans. The Roma from each country have their own style of music, dance and costumes, we honor this by presenting the appropriate music, movements and costumes. Through our performances we hope to bring awareness to the public of the beautiful music, dance and culture of the Romani People that live throughout the world.
Danza Romani perform in educational settings, such as schools and libraries, festivals and fairs, as well as stage performances.
