This class is a progression of the technique learned in Tribal level 1. Students will continue to work on Tribal combinations, improvisation techniques, and zilling. Special topics such as dancing with props, or learning tribal choreographies may be introduced. Students interested in taking Tribal Level 2 must be proficient in the basics of Tribal improvisation and have a working knowledge of the fundamental steps and combinations used in Tribal Bellydance (see below).
This session will be a combined Level 1 and 2 class and will feature a devilishly delightful choreography that students can perform at Blue Moon Dance Company’s annual spooktacular event, Haflaween to be held on Saturday, October 20.
