Passionate performers of traditional middle-eastern rhythm and dance.

Banat Amar will delight you with their joyful improvisations and dynamic choreographies. Gorgeous rhythms from live percussionists accompany a troupe of enchanting and playful dancers in colourful and intricate costuming. Both the dances and costumes are inspired by late 19th century Ghawazee dancers of Egypt – renowned for their swinging hips, powerful shimmies, and delicate arms.

Banat Amar are family-friendly fun, perfect for community events and festivals - Bring along your clapping hands and cheering voices!
