The Divine Gypsy Troupe
The Divine Gypsy Troupe is a creative belly dance ensemble. Their innovative, eclectic style derives from Middle Eastern, Roma, folk, and incorporates various cultural flavorings. Their performances reflect feeling-attunement with chosen melodies and rhythms – being at-one with and moved by the music.
Members of the troupe dance from the heart whether performing choreographed or free-form selections. Their energetic communion with audiences is an intimate sharing of creative inspiration and uplift.
Leader, Lia Ridley has enjoyed performing with several versions of The Divine Gypsy Troupe through the years. Her initial inspiration for “gypsy style” dance came during childhood in Transylvania. She observed the Gypsies doing their free-form, celebratory dancing in her hometown, Dej, during their occasional, temporary encampments. Lia finds belly dancing a perfect vehicle for expressing one's inner being and zest for life.
