As a general category, Tribal Fusion Style covers many flavors of American Cabaret Belly Dance, both the ethnically folkloric inspired and fusion cross over styles which explore modern, jazz, dance theater, and hip hop with classic belly dance technique. This fused with traditional, classical & ethnic dance forms from across the world makes for a very unique and joyous dance form. Tribal Style Belly Dance is often associated with concepts of “Community” dance, where women dance together as a “tribe”, a loving, supportive, nurturing environment where each woman can be vulnerable to the dance, opening their hearts and expanding their experience through the music and movement. As well, “tribal Style” also includes a wonderful form of Improvisational dance that is done as a “community” called “Campfire Dance”, where a vocabulary of cues are shared by the dancers to cue movement, technique and combinations giving the vision of a well choreographed dance, all moving as one, yet, the dance is totally improv within a “follow the leader” structure. This fun, exciting and artistic approach to belly dance coupled with creative fusion instills a sense of tradition, camaraderie and progression for both the dancers and audience.
