The Qamari Dance Collective is a collaborative of
dance artists based in Asheville, NC. Mahsati
Janan created the Qamari Dance Collective in
2007 to encompass professional instruction and
performance in multiple styles of Raqs Sharqi,
commonly known as belly dance.
The Qamari Dance Collective isn't about making a
single look or style and it isn't a traditional type of
troupe. It's about bringing together awesome
dancers who have their own styles. Qamari's
focus is on dancers who have all reached a high
level with their own dancing and are still open and
willing to learn and collaborate with other artists.
Any dancer interested in working with us as part
of Qamari can email for more information.
