Let the beauty, joy, and grace of the Gypsy Hips dancers spice up your event! Gypsy Hips can be booked for performances, parties, and workshops. Our style is grounded in Middle Eastern traditional dance, but we often fuse moves from different cultural dances into our routines as well. For example, one of our dancers has West African dance training. We can tailor our show for your audience. Expect to see fast moving, energetic shimmies, smooth flowing veils, enchanting sword balancing, bright colorful fans, and beautiful sparkling costumes!

We are a talented group of women of various ages and backgrounds who share a passion for belly dancing. Our troupe consists of seasoned performers eager to get your audience smiling and clapping along. We can perform as a troupe with six dancers, or in pairs for smaller venues. We enjoy family friendly events that are part entertainment and part audience interaction and participation. We also perform for charity benefits. For a sample of what we do best, search for gypsyhipsdance on YouTube. We also have a website with more information. Just search for us by troupe name.
We have performed at fairs, festivals, private parties, at the Illinois Renaissance Festival, Friday Night Live in downtown Champaign, the Ace Awards, Downtown Arts Festival, Boneyard Arts Festival, the Highdive, the Iron Post, at retirement homes, Bellies for Bellies charity event, Belly Boo and Bellies for Life charity events for breast cancer, and more!
We will connect you with one of our dancers to coordinate our performance for your event. This dancer will work with you to make all necessary arrangements for performance space and music accompaniment. Payment is based on number of dancers, length of performance, and nature of the venue. We have a sliding scale for benefits and charities. Please see our website for more details. Payment is accepted at the conclusion of the performance.
We do not dance at bachelor parties or venues seeking erotic dance. That is not what belly dance is about.
