Piper is a second-generation belly dancer
and winner of the prestigious Belly Dancer of the Year Competition in
2000. Her captivating style is a fusion of traditional and modern
Middle Eastern and North African dance influences, with just a dash of flamenco and jazz thrown in to spice up the mix!
Recognized by dance ethnographer Elizabeth Artemis Mourat as an expert in Vintage Oriental (also called Classic Cabaret style belly dance), Piper also
specializes in thematic Oriental dance performances, some with
authentic regional Middle Eastern music and costumes; others are
original creations of modern belly dance. Some of her dances tell a
story, others are fusions of Middle Eastern dance with flamenco or jazz.
begin at $400 for a single, 20 minute performance in the Baltimore/DC area. Troupe performances begin at $800 for Piper and two Daughters of Rhea dancers. If you
