"Keshvar Project – A Cincinnati Belly Dance and Music Troupe

Borne out of the ancient sounds of the Middle East and the movements of American Tribal Belly dance, Keshvar Project brings together the passions of  musicians and dancers to create a unique 21st century expression of music and movement. The Cincinnati bellydance troupe that combines live, original song and dynamic, heart-felt dance to create powerful, mesmerizing performances.

The Band, guitar, drums, flute, violin, horn, clarinet and more, mix homegrown influences of jazz, roots and blues with traditional Middle Eastern, Arabic and North African melodies and rhythms.

First and foremost, we are a band for dancers.  American Tribal Belly Dance is an art form which can be executed against virtually any kind of music with a beat.  And, while “traditional middle-eastern” music fits the immediate aesthetic, our sound is a World Sound mixing traditional melodies, rhythms and instruments with a heavy dose of our American roots. We create original belly dance music built upon a deep foundation of ancient rhythms and modern sounds. We are Midwestern students of middle eastern music, nurtured on a plethora of radio and record store skirmishes who are passionate about creating music for some mighty fine belly dancers.

The Dancers add salsa, modern, fusion and classical bellydance to the improvisational soul of American Tribal Style to create their own brand of Cincinnati style Belly Dance.

Our dance developed out of the world of American Tribal-Style Belly Dance and the variations borne from it as it traveled east from its San Francisco home.  As individuals, most came to the dance form at one of Cincinnati’s founding studios for Tribal Belly Dance - The Center for World Rhythms and Movement. Under the wing of director Suzanne Gerard and her music and dance troupe Gaiananda, we developed into improvisational tribal belly dancers mixed with a heavy dose of original choreography.

We danced, we taught, we performed. And we learned that there were many paths to choose. We turned to a new direction and became The Keshvar Project. Our goal: take our individual experiences, talents and passions, mix in the original influences from our band, blend with lessons from our foremothers and create our own style of belly dance.

That said, what to label our dance remains an open question. “Improvisational belly dance combined with elaborate choreographies, using classical belly dance movements while adding a salsa move and a pop from the modern world…”, and on it goes.

We give and we take in order to create artistry, community and spirit. We value professionalism, fun and energy, respect of the old, openness to the new.  We love the power and the beauty of this dance. We love the community that it builds. We love the music.

And we love the Spirit of tribal belly dance – dancing together, in tune with each other and with a dance that is strong, open, firmly rooted in the feminine power as expressed in the grace, beauty and power of the movement.
