NileStar Oriental troupe

The NileStar Oriental performance troupe has a bellydance repertoire inspired by the dances of Egypt and beyond. Our shows are always a fun, vibrant and uplifting experience for audiences.

Dancing with the troupe is an opportunity for students to present work at a professional level. Participation in troupe performances is optional and decided on an opt-in basis.

The NileStar Oriental regularly performs at festivals, charity events and haflas around Sydney. Members of the troupe may also be invited to perform at private functions.
