The Silk Road Dance Company and their pioneering performances offer a unique glimpse of the life and art of little known cultures, especially the Islamic world. 

With an impressive repertoire of more than 130 dances, Silk Road Dance Company offers programs with a depth and breadth reflecting decades of field research and study by Dr. Laurel Gray who has received many awards for her life-time of creative work. Company dancers have also studied and traveled extensively throughout the East, mastering many dance styles. Some rare pieces are part of the company's 'legacy repertoire'; these rare dances are seldom now performed in the countries of origin. 

Part of the International Open Central Asia Cultural Festival organised by Orzu Arts.
