Samadhi is a tribal fusion belly dance troupe performing in the
Charleston - Huntington area of West Virginia.  While performing, the
dancers are entertaining themselves as much as they are
entertaining the audience.  They do a mix of choreographed and
improvisational pieces. You'll hear them making “yip” sounds to
signal changes.  They will also zaghareet to one another to express
their enthusiasm and excitement.  They'll even laugh and smile if one
of the dancers misses a cue - which is always a possibility with
improv!

As you can tell, they don't take themselves very seriously.  Since
these dancers are all about the having fun themselves and making
sure the audience is having fun, too, they'll frequently invite the
audience to dance with them.  They form a circle, designate one
dancer as the leader of the chorus (the dancers in the circle), then
each dancer rotates into the middle of the circle to dance.  

Samadhi was formed in 2004 and is based in Teays Valley. Their
costuming is an eclectic mix of modern and ethnic pieces from many
regions of the world.  Much of their jewelry originates from the Kuchi
tribe of Afghanistan. For more information on tribal dance or to
