The Women of Selket is a professional bellydance troupe based in Richmond, Virginia that specializes in the folk dances of the Middle East and North Africa. Its purpose is to present dance performances and educational programs designed to broaden the public's awareness and knowledge of the cultures in these regions. Exciting staging, extravagant costuming, and devotion to authenticity have become trademarks of the troupe. The troupe has an extensive repertoire, including Egyptian Cane, Persian Court, Saudi Women’s, Oriental Cabaret, Egyptian Pop, and Twentieth-Century Ghawazee, as well as dances from the Georgian Caucasus and Moorish Spain.

Selket is the name of the ancient Egyptian goddess of magic, who provided protection from scorpion bites and during childbirth. She was one of the four goddesses whose serene presence guarded the tombs of the pharaohs.
