Bandit Queens presents professional bellydancers from around the nation, both traditional and experimental, in a relaxed, uplifting atmosphere! Each Tribal Cafe begins with a 15 minute dance class for the kids, donated by one of the artists performing. There is Open Dance Floor time during Intermission.
In the epic three-way battle between Beauty, Danger & Bad Decisions, who will win? The Bandit Queens are a seriously capable dance and music project, fronted by the ‘Lucille Ball of Bellydance’, notorious performer and instructor Madame Onça. These artists have entertained enthusiastic mobs across the New World, creating a rapscallion’s mix of acrobatic bellydance, burlesque, acoustic anthems, sword-dancing, saloon-tinged comedy, audience interaction, fire-eating, and family-friendly sideshow antics. Like the once and future King, when the world needs them, the Bandit Queens are there. Follow us on the Tribal Cafe page on Facebook to stay up to date with current performers, locations and fun.
