ZARDOZI performers have traveled through the world of dance to collect that which captures our imagination to create a style of belly dance uniquely our own.  We build upon a foundation of tradition and embellish it with influences that include Modern Dance, Cabaret, Flamenco, Indian, African and the Folkloric Dance styles of diverse cultures. ZARDOZI is an award winning Fusion Style Belly Dance Troupe based in Annapolis, Maryland; co-founded by Despina Bast in August of 2005.  We perform as a troupe and as soloists throughout the area and beyond.
