Different Drummer Belly Dancers

We All Dance To A Different Drummer

Different Drummer Belly Dancers mixes traditional belly dancing and modern music, borrowing from Folkloric, Cabaret, American Tribal, and Fusion styles of belly dance. We believe the power, beauty, joy, and grace of belly dance can be expressed in our modern 20th and 21st century music. Plus audiences love it!
