Minneapolis Bellydance History

turkish eye

Many within Minnesota’s bellydance community are sadly unaware of our long and rich history of our Middle Eastern dance troupes and musicians.

In an attempt to avoid ‘revisionist history’, we’ve developed this Minnesota Bellydance and Music History section to recognize and honor our pioneering dancing and musical sisters and brothers.

Thank you to all who paved the way for the Minnesota dance troupes and musical groups of today.
