Fundamentals of Tribal Belly Dance classes are presented in the exciting Tribal Improvisational Style (lead/follow  group improvisation) format. Fundamentals of belly dance technique are emphasized, with specific attention to tribal dance posture and stance, arm positioning, safe ways to warm up and cool down, tips for performing, how to play finger cymbals (zils), and most of all, how to have fun and enjoy yourself while learning this beautiful art form. If you love to dance, you will love this class!

Is this the right class for me?

Fundamentals of Tribal Belly Dance is recommended for students who are new to tribal belly dance/group improvisation or who would like to brush up on the basic vocabulary of this style of dance. While this is not a strictly ATS® class, fundamental ATS® vocabulary and structure is an integral part of the format.

If you’re brand new to belly dance and aren’t sure what any of these terms (ATS®, Tribal, etc.) mean, we recommend taking our interactive quiz to help decide what class is right for you.
