Teejei shares a traditional style of dance from Turkey, as performed by the Rom lineage of nomadic tribes that traveled from India and left their mark in the Middle East, Europe, and beyond.

When & Where
Brandy White of Discordia Arts
Brandy White, Co-founder and owner of Discordia Arts, is more than just your typical belly dancer. Working in the eclectic tradition of Tribal Fusion, Brandy strives to expand and blend her dance vocabulary, and includes many various styles into her repertoire. Such an open palette allows her to create beautiful, expressive pieces that complement and embody the work she chooses. You can find her performing a fusion blend in a more traditional sense, or a theatrical piece with musician Robert Gowan that pushes every limit of the definition bellydance or at times leave the bellydance genre all together, or more recently catch her swinging swords, fire and/or silk to add a layer of the unexpected! Regardless, Brandy is constantly on the edge of her limits and pushing her boundaries for her own enjoyment and hopefully yours as well!
