Our first Offbeat debut of the month comes from a relatively recent addition to the bustling Portland belly dance community.
If you’re lucky, you’ve likely seen this tiny and talented dancer about town at Marrakesh and the Blue Monk, or perhaps performing with the Rhythm Keepers or the Charleens.

Our next Offbeat debut for November is a dancer who has long been a member of the Portland belly dance community, but who has been out of the performance scene for a while. We are delighted to have lured her back onto the stage! That’s right, it’s the Offbeat debut of:
