Frederick Pagan Pride Day offers a wide variety of entertainment. Past performances at the festival have included Luna Aerial Dance and Performing Arts, Anam Cara Belly Dance, Kindred Crow, Stephen Darnell and Sea Raven, Anahita’s Divine Belly Dance, Pyrophoric, Private Story, and more.
Kindred Crow is a Pagan Folk project featuring Irene Glasse, Ash Glasse, percussionist Strix, didgeridoo player Caine Dreamwalker, vocalist Layla, and late band member singer songwriter Kat Gray (Kat Savery, Twelve Days Dry). Kindred Crow is an acoustic journey through mystery, magic, myth, and mirth: a little bit Celtic, a little bit Tribal, and a ton of fun. The Crows are excited to be sharing the stage with Luna Aerial Dance and Performing Arts this year!
Luna Aerial Dance is an aerial dance school and performance company open to curious minds of all ages, gender identities, and body types. We offer group classes, privates, semi-privates, parties, event performers… but most importantly we offer a safe space to make friends and express your truth.
Troupe Anam Cara. Lindsey McCormick is the founder of Anam Cara Dance in Frederick, MD. She teaches classical belly dance technique with a fusion flare, blending elements from dance styles learned throughout her life, as well as Romany skirt dancing. Her goal is to help the belly dance scene in Frederick flourish, and to educate the public on the true nature of this beautiful art form. She is the director of Troupe Anam Cara, formed through the bonds of sisterhood and a deep love for the dance. This is a group of incredibly hard-working dancers who somehow manage to juggle life, careers and children to foster their passion. They are all thrilled to be dancing at Pagan Pride again with special invited dance guests from around the area.
