Enjoy the fun, workout, and beauty or this amazing dance—we would love to dance with you! Tribal Belly Dance is taking over the world, one hip at a time!

A mass of swaying hips, undulating bellies, hands upon hands upon hands with arms moving snake-like, strangely synchronous; wrapping us together in our web of enchanting improvisation. Haunting horns calling you from the desert, earthly drums bring you back to the beginning of time; forlorn melodies sung from the deepest of souls. Woolen yarns, billowing silk, and jangling metal add texture to delight the senses, reminding you of the millions of women who came before us. A tribute to the past, created in the present, borrowing from many cultures and full of today's urban spirit, feel your tribal soul coming to life, echoing our cries for life and freedom.
This dance is an esthetically pleasing blend of the folkloric, nomadic, and classical dances of the Middle East, Spain, India, Egypt, but with our contemporary twist as dancers of today. Physically challenging and spiritually grounding, tribal belly dance is about the empowerment of dancers as we improvisationally and collectively dance in our circle, a community of all sizes and ages. It is a dance for every body.
