Coming on Friday, Saturday and Sunday
Formed in 1999 in Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire, Barefoot Bellydance is a troupe of musicians and tribal style belly dancers. The band has developed its own original sound made up of a fusion of western and Arabic influences using a variety of Middle Eastern instruments such as a darabuka, djembe, riq and karkabous. The dance has its roots in ancient dance styles and is based on a common non-verbal language and group improvisation. Each performer has created their own bright and colourful costume which takes inspiration from cultures from around the world to create a strong, vibrant and striking look. Barefoot dancers perform using a number of traditional props which include finger cymbals, veils and swords.
