Show times are at 8 each evening, with an additional performance on Saturday at 4 p.m.

The 38-member troupe fuses traditional Middle Eastern technique with hip-hop, tribal and Indian dance. Guest performers will include Princeton student groups Sympoh, Ballet Folklorico and Triple 8.

Raks Odalisque was formed by students who were inspired by belly dance classes taught in the Campus Recreation Program. The group first performed at Communiversity in 2000 and the next year began its annual spring show at Frist. Raks Odalisque also performs during other campus events.

Admission is free with Tiger Tickets marked "Student Events Eligible," or tickets can be purchased for $5 for students and $10 for general admission. Tickets are available online through University Ticketing, by visiting the ticket office in the Frist Campus Center or by calling (609) 258-9220.
