August Dancer Spotlight

Every month we will be spotlighting a dancer in Westchester county.  This month, our spotlight turns to the Delphi Dance Ensemble!

Based in Pleasantville, NY, the Delphi Dance Ensemble was formed by Oracle, a recent transplant from Lawrenceville, GA and the former director of the Jahara Phoenix Dance Company.  In 2012 the dancers of Delphi began as an advanced class through the World Heritage Cultural Center in Pleasantville, and soon began to grow from class to stage. 

The dancers of Delphi have varied performance backgrounds, from ballroom to theater, and everything in between.  Their particular style of bellydance is considered "world tribal fusion" which means they fuse movement together from many areas of the world, but the special bellydance technique leans more heavily in the tribal style.

The Delphi Dance Ensemble specializes in festival performances where they draw in their audience with their relaxed and genuine presence.  Past performances include the Ossining Village Fair, Armonk Global Village, Oyster Music and Arts Festival, Ossining SummerFest, and many more.  Their performances are interactive and family-friendly and a delight for  audiences of all ages.
