Belly dancers shake it up at Harris Center

The Belly Dance Superstars will perform DanZara at the Harris Center for the Arts, 10 College Parkway in Folsom, on Monday, Oct. 14 at 7:30 p.m.

The Belly Dance Superstars (BDSS) present a distinctive fusion of tribal, Egyptian and cabaret dance, transporting the audience to a distant time and place while ushering this ancient art form into the present.

BDSS features America’s best-known, most sought-after belly dancers — many of whom are expert belly dance instructors. The premiere dance troupe is the only professional dance company of its kind on tour, making its performances and workshops popular affairs across the United States and around the world.

The artists come from a variety of dance backgrounds ranging from Egyptian, Mexican, Latin, classical ballet, jazz and others.

Music executive, Miles Copeland, founded and first produced BDSS in 2003. Copeland is the former manager of Sting and The Police, and founder of the iconic IRS Records which launched the careers of artists including: REM, The Go Gos and Fine Young Cannibals.

Copeland’s interest in belly dance and his idea to promote a belly dance tour, was born in 2002 when he sponsored a belly dance competition in Hollywood to promote an Arabic record and belly dancers from around the country participated.

Over half a million people saw BDSS for the first time on the Lollapalooza rock tour in 2003. Since then, the dance troupe has performed more than 800 shows in 20 countries, including at the famed Folies Bergere in Paris in 2005.

BDSS films have been televised on PBS, The Ovation Channel and The Documentary Channel (U.S.), as well as Direct TV (Latin America) and NHK (Japan).

Tickets are $25 to $39, premium $49 and students with IDs $12.

Tickets are available online at harriscenter.net or from the Harris Center ticket office at 916-608-6888 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Saturday, and two hours before show time.

Parking is included in the price of the ticket.
