About Sahara’s Treasure

Sahara’s Treasure is a professional dance company specializing in folkloric and modern interpretations in the rich tradition of Middle Eastern dance. The troupe hosts shows, teaches classes and workshops, and performs at venues out of Montgomery County, Maryland.

Since its formation in 2006, the troupe has taught and performed at international festivals, art shows, charity fundraisers, and theaters all over the East Coast. As a hallmark of their commitment to their local community, Sahara’s Treasure became a registered woman-owned business and produced gala events to raise thousands of dollars for local community organizations such as The Dwelling Place and Sister to Sister Foundation.

In addition to large-scale fundraising events, the company also produces the annual Shiver Me Shimmies student hafla, providing dancers of all levels an opportunity to perform and build connections in the bellydance community.
