SaharaSilk.com            Our Mission... Who we are... What we do... For classes... For hire...

Our mission is above all, to have fun by sharing and celebrating an activity which is as mentally, physically, and creatively challenging as it is ultimately rewarding.

Next, and equally important, is our desire and commitment to create a unique, educational, and entertaining presentation suitable for all occasions and for the whole family to enjoy.

Our direction and inspiration come from compelling rhythms and dances dating from antiquity, nurtured on the shores of the Mediterranean and banks of the Nile. Dances which are performed even today in North Africa and the Middle East at weddings, celebrations, and family gatherings are our resources.

Our resolve is to research, recreate, and represent elements of these delightful dances both authentically folkloric and/or stylized in the "from the heart" spirit from which they originally evolved.
