Ankara Rose is a professional dance artist whose passion and diverse training have shaped her original style into one uniquely her own. A top-notch artist, she performs full-time as a soloist and tours often with top Celtic & World music acts. Audiences have often commented on the energy she brings to the dance, her tasteful and family-appropriate style, musicality, and fiery spirit.

Make your next event one really special, that will leave your guests with unforgettable memories! Ankara Rose truly cares about the success of your event and will tailor each performance specifically to it. She has performed at many private functions throughout her career and will work with you to ensure its success.

Besides Middle Eastern (Belly dance), Ankara Rose also works professionally performing Irish Step and Scottish Highland. She is known for her signature stylization "Celtic Fusion Bellydance": a unique and dynamic fusion of Irish Step, Scottish Highland, and Middle Eastern Dance. She is one of the world's first to perform Celtic Fusion Bellydance professionally, and has done so since 2005. This energetic and dynamic performer has taught workshops, choreographed, and performed at various venues throughout the United States and Canada - from outdoor festivals to indoor theatrical productions; in film and live music concerts.

It is her goal to share her passion and joy of dance with the world; whether it's in a staged theatrical production, music video, live music concert... or at your very own event!

Please Note: She provides family friendly entertainment- She does NOT perform for bachelor parties/all-male audiences.

** PERFORMANCE SCHEDULE listed here is NOT a complete schedule! Please contact for full & current up-to-date availability as she is often booked solid at certain times of the year or when on tour, and is busy booking new shows all the time!

TYPICAL SHOWS INCLUDE:
*Completely customizable upon discussion of your event*

BELLYDANCE: Ankara Rose performs Turkish, Egyptian, Arabic and American Oriental. Show includes a gorgeous traditional bellydance costume and appropriate music. Props and specialties can include: Veil and Double Veil, Sword, Zills (Finger cymbals), Drum solo, and audience participation if you wish!

IRISH STEP/CELTIC SHOW: Can perform Soft Shoe (Hard shoe must have appropriate dance surface at your venue - and certain conditions apply) to traditional reel and jig tunes or more modern-edge Celtic rock. Dancing can reflect the music from either traditional steps to innovative and cutting-edge contemporary choreography.

CELTIC BELLYDANCE FUSION: Irish Step, Scottish Highland, and Bellydance all fused into one dance! Music reflects the fusion and dancing can include any of the specialties from the above categories. *Please note: Unless split into more than one performance with time for costume change, Celtic Fusion shows typically do NOT include the glamorous heavily-beaded bellydance costume; as they are not appropriate to Celtic dance in!

**Typical private function shows run from 15-30 minutes and range in price. Ankara Rose is available for longer events as well, and can be booked for a flat hourly rate depending on type of event. She can also do split performances throughout the evening in one particular dance style or a combination of the above. Additional Travel/lodging fees will apply when necessary.

**Ankara Rose is also available to teach dance lessons in-conjunction with her performances. (Bellydance is perfect for Bachelorette/Ladies only events!) Please inquire for further details.

**Ankara Rose frequently works with musicians, and would be more than happy to organize live music for your event - from one musician to an entire band! Special rates and conditions apply. Please contact for details and availability; pricing quotes here do not include musicians/live music.

We had an 80th birthday party for my husband and Ankara Rose was to be his surprise! He was surprised and delighted with Ankara Rose as was about 40 invited guests. Ankara Rose was very professional, very talented and danced before an audience of ages from 4 to 87. We all would have enjoyed a short history of the dance, perhaps adding 10 to 15 minutes to her program. Thank you again Ankara Rose! You made Dick's party a day he will always remember.
