Raqs Caravan West

“You have to love dancing to stick to it. It gives you nothing back, no manuscripts to store away, no paintings to show on walls and maybe hang in museums, no poems to be printed and sold, nothing but that single fleeting moment when you feel alive.” ~Merce Cunningham

Raqs Caravan West is a Sahara Dance student company which combines tribal and fusion belly dance with inspiration from a variety of western dance forms and the tribal cultures of the Middle East. Dancers blend a modern aesthetic with the camaraderie that is the hallmark of tribal style.
