Based on Sufi Islamic tradition, whirling dervish dancing, also known as tanoura, is a vibrant form of dance entertainment in which performers rotate repetitively in circles. Seen to represent the movement of planets around the sun, the aim of the dance is to abandon your nafs, or personal desires. 

Featuring 2 dancers and able to perform either the traditional Turkish style of Sufi dancing or the Egyptian style, Scarlett Entertainment's London based dervish dancers are highly sought after to perform at festivals, cultural events, weddings and theatres worldwide. 

Having featured on BBC Arabic and Channel 4, one of these skilled tanoura dance acts is the Guinness World Record champion for the most Sufi rotations within an hour. Able to perform in white dresses or vibrantly coloured costumes, our whirling dervish artists can provide traditional, modern or spiritual shows depending on the requirements of your event. Also able to incorporate talks and workshops on Sufi dance whirling, this authentic act is not to be missed! Contact our in-house entertainment experts today for more information about hiring dervish dancers for your special occasion.

Top Tip!
You can also hire our whirling dervishes alongside other traditional Egyptian or Turkish dance acts including belly dancers and folk performers.
