This blog is going to take you on a journey with us, a dance journey, as we work towards becoming the very best dancers we can be. It's a journey through the vibrant, engaging, hypnotic world of tribal bellydance ---- and if you don't know what that is now, stick with us and you soon will! In the words of Paulette Rees-Denis, one of our biggest inspirations and a true tribal mamma :
'...this tribal style of bellydance is life-affirming; woman-beautiful; and spiritually, physically, and creatively energizing...
Tribal is an aesthetically 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.'
More blogs will follow very soon. So grab yourself a coffee, sit back and prepare to be drawn into a whole new world - come, dance with us and let's make this Tribal Pilgrimage together!
