They Called Us “Gypsies”

Gina Capossela and The Raqs Salaam Dance Theater present  “They Called Us Gypsies,” their 12th Annual Middle Eastern and American Belly Dance Showcase. This year’s show focuses on the journey from India through the Middle East to Spain, featuring dances from Turkey, Egypt, Iraq, Bollywood, and so much more. Special guests Flamenco Boston will perform live Spanish music and dance. The Raqs Salaam Dance Theater’s 12th Showcase pays tribute to the dancers whose ancestors traveled from India long ago, deconstructing the term “gypsy”, and honoring the true identities and origins of these special people. This is a family-friendly show with delights for young and old, including giveaways, comedy and audience participation.
