The New Urban Hipsy 


Formerly known as Urban Gypsy


Welcome to Our New Home

Welcome to the online home of the troupe formerly known as Urban Gypsy. We are dedicated to actively promoting equality and anti-racism. We are against any kind of discrimination based on gender, sexual orientation, religion, or culture. Out of respect for the Romani people and the desire to be sensitive to minority suffering and understanding of our position of privilege, we are changing our name to Urban Hipsy.

We will continue to honor the ancient traditions of Arab dance while educating ourselves to be the best world citizens we can be. Our website is currently being reconstructed to reflect our new name and will be up again soon! Thank you for visiting and we look forward to sharing this beautiful dance with you soon! .
