Women 12 and over are invited to enjoy the show, sip tea, learn a few easy dance moves and then shimmy along with the Dalai Mamas for a grand community belly dance finale.

Women are encouraged to bring teens. All ages can experience the fun of belly dance together.

Prices are $15 in advance/$20 at door for adults and $10 in advance/ $15 at door for students 12-21 with ID.
Advance tickets can be purchased online at or by calling Brown Paper Tickets live 24/7 hotline: 1-800-838-3006.

Inspired by the #1 New York Times bestseller, Three Cups of Tea: One Man’s Mission To Promote Peace…One School At A Time, the Dalai Mamas dedicate themselves to supporting the Central Asia Institute, the non-profit founded by Greg Mortenson, former mountaineer turned humanitarian. He found a way to educate girls in the most remote mountainous areas of Afghanistan and Pakistan. Portland writer David Oliver Relin co-authored the book that follows Mortenson’s harrowing adventures working with local tribes to get secular schools built in the Taliban’s back yard.
