Directed by Jeylan, Treasures in the Sand is a family-oriented troupe which performs a variety of styles including traditional bellydance as well as Middle Eastern folk dances. We love to get the audience up and dancing with us and will happily teach you how to cheer your favorite dances with a "zaghareet"! We are available on weekends as well as some times during the week, and enjoy visiting festivals, retirement communities, schools, and special events. We always wear colorful and appropriate costumes. Consider us when looking for animated entertainment!

SCHEDULING AUDITIONS NOW
We are looking for new troupe members to join us in our love of presenting theatricalized Mid-Eastern folk dance and bellydance through community outreach. Members are expected to perform at an intermediate level or higher, present themselves professionally, and be available for Monday evening rehearsals and weekend performances. Please come prepared to perform a 3-5 minute Mid-Eastern dance. For more information about auditions, troupe membership, or to request our troupe guidelines or mission statement, please e-mail Treasures in the Sand.
Might you be our newest Treasure?
Short courses and rehearsals are held on Monday evenings at the UUFP in Newport News (click UUFP for directions). Please inquire about private coaching or auditioning for the performance troupe.
The focus of the troupe is to perform a variety of theatricalized Mid-Eastern group folk dance choreographies for a variety of audiences. We particularly enjoy performing at assisted living and rehab venues and embrace the idea of bringing smiles to those in need.
If you are a dancer who likes the idea of "paying it forward" and gets caught up in the music when you hear a dumbek or a mismar playing (or would like to learn what those may be!), you may be a good match for this group. Rehearsals are on Monday evenings. Please inquire about new member protocol - we look forward to hearing from you!
