"You make me homesick for Egypt!"
Banat al-Beled troupe
Banat al-Beled is one of the most popular professional Middle Eastern Dance troupes in the Baltimore-Washington area. Founded by Latifa in 1999, Banat al-Beled performs a vibrant mix of dance styles; from elegant oriental night-club routines seen in the posh night clubs of Cairo, to the upbeat folkloric dances performed during times of celebration throughout the MIddle East and North Africa, and of course, American style belly dance, defined by the exciting blend of many cultures that immigrated and settled in the United States.

Banat al-Beled performs at numerous festivals and parties throughout the year. Catch them at a bellydance show or hire them for your event! Learn more at
