It began with a dream of bringing the world together. A dream that goes back thousands of years to the birth of civilization. An effort to promote understanding through a shared human experience without regard to race, color, religion, or politics. A quest to bridge humanity through thought, innovation, and the universal language of the world – Music & Dance.
Our journey begins in the land of the Pharaohs where it was believed that the swing of the hips of women walking on the banks of the Nile during harvest had to be put to music. Over millennia, the region now known as the Arab World and the Middle East evolved through the interactions of many cultures and influences to create a rich cultural mosaic of artistic expression, reflecting the diversity, harmony, and exchange of its many people.
In modern times, the folkloric dances of Arabia have faded into the background of low-grade commercial entertainment inspired by false and baseless colonial fantasies of harems and scandalous dancers of the “Orient”, and historically inaccurate cultural misappropriation. A DREAM OF ARABIA® is a revival of the true ancient art of Arabic dance, fused with elements of global cultures and dances, much like the historic fusion that created it.
Welcome to our caravan to the land of mystery, intrigue, and the desert mirage with its inspired stories. The journey is a dream, and the destination is the sands of Arabia.
