Modern belly dance that's rooted in tradition and breaks the rules.
Beautiful Unusual offers high quality solo and group performances. We perform several styles of belly dance: traditional Middle Eastern dance; fun, upbeat shows suitable to festivals, circus events, burlesque shows, etc.; and experimental modern "artsy" work. We focus on excellence in technical ability, creativity, and professionalism. We also love opulent costuming and several of our members are artists who collectively create our look. Beautiful Unusual is devoted to inclusiveness, body positivity, and creating space for our performers and students to develop and express what is beautiful and unusual in themselves.
Our standard shows are 15-20min. We can provide solo, duet, or group sets. As versatile performers we tailor every set to best fit the atmosphere and goals of the event at which it is presented. This includes content, style, musical choices, and costuming. We can also vary the number and length of sets, provide atmospheric or roving performances, audience interaction, and stage shows. Often new pieces are created for specific events and new content is constantly created to keep our shows fresh for the audience and dancers.
