Karavan's 25th Anniversary "Give Belly Dance A Chance" (GBDAC2021) Weekend

Whether you are interested in a specific belly dance show (or all three!), want to attend see the National Arab Orchestra Takht Ensemble perform on Saturday night, or attend any of the performances via online streaming, we have you covered.


Tickets are now on sale for both live and virtual performances and for the first time ever, you will be able to pick your seats at the UTSA Buena Vista Theatre.

This celebration, October 1st - 3rd, will be the end of an era... and the beginning of a new one.




The Road to GBDAC2021
With this being Karavan's 25th Anniversary; we are not only preparing for the performances and excited about dancing to live music again with our incredible musicians; we are also reminiscing about the highlights from years past.

Are You Ready?

Our belly dancers are already rehearsing in costume at the UTSA Buena Vista Theater.


Karen reminisces about how our Project Band belly dancers performed "Virtue" on the Hays Street Bridge and live at GBDAC.

Just days away from our 25th anniversary "Give Belly Dance A Chance" weekend, Karen talks about using rock and roll as a learning tool with Tom Petty's rock and acoustic versions of "Layla".

If you have ever been to a "Give Belly Dance A Chance" performance weekend over the last 25 years, you know that all of the dancers each night belly dance to "Lulu".


Karen reminisces about that one year we videotaped every day folks and family from around the world to dance with us on screen.

As Karen reminisces about the journey of using live music within the Project Band curriculum, she reflects on finally finding and inviting Michael Ibrahim to play at GBDAC2017 along with Georges Lammam, Naser
Musa, and Miguel Crespo. This was HUGE and lots more of this to come at "Give Belly Dance A Chance" GBDAC2021 this weekend and beyond.
