Bal Anat 50th Anniversary
Bal Anat, the longest-running belly dance company in the world celebrates 50 years of traditional, folkloric, and fantasy belly dance with an evening-length commemorative performance in the San Francisco Bay Area.
The groundbreaking and globally-influential company was created in 1968 by Jamila Salimpour, who drew from her experience as a performer with the Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus.
Under the direction of master choreographer and dancer Suhaila Salimpour, the evening includes dance tableaux from the Middle East, North Africa, the Anatolian Peninsula, and Persia, performed by a cast of over 50 dancers from across the United States, Canada, East Asia, and Europe.
