Origins Folkloric Dance Company


Origins Folkloric Dance Company is a professional ensemble dedicated to performing ethnic dances from the Middle East and North Africa. The troupe officially formed in September 2011, after teaming up at Katia of Boston's Middle-East Dance retreats to perform Katia's folkloric dances. 

In addition to staging two productions of their own, the troupe has performed at the New England Folk Festival, Karim Nagi's Farewell Show, Hudson River Shakespeare's production of "Cleopatra", Rakassah East, Cairo Cabaret, and many regional workshop shows and haflas.

Company members have received training from many leading scholars and performers of folkloric dance, including Katia of Boston, Morwenna Assaf, Sahra Saeeda, Mahmoud Reda, Ibrahim Farrah, Karim Nagi, Reyhan, and Kay Hardy Campbell. 

We really appreciated your support for our event (Cultural Night/Travel Around The World!). The students and their parents enjoyed your show very much! You were wonderful!
