At Florida Tribal Dance we pride ourselves in providing a well rounded dance experience that is full of thoughtful instruction that includes proper body mechanics, history about our dance form, an enriching group environment as well as fun and exciting lessons. 

We recommend that you start with the style you feel most drawn to, there are no right or wrongs. Whether you are interested in our fitness classes, or our structured technique classes we encourage you to go where you feel most draw to.

We want to foster an environment that is both challenging and encouraging all the while assisting students in becoming the dancers they want to be.  To do this our Leveled program of classes begins at the foundation of each style and builds both in technique and stylization as students progress. 

We know that many students also are coming to our school for a great workout so in conjunction with our technique classes we offer fitness classes that can be taken by themselves or are a great companion to your technique class. Our fitness classes often change from month to month to offer new and exciting ways to work our dancer bodies.

Not sure what the differences between Tribal Style Improv and Tribal Fusion are? Read more below.

Tribal Style Improv
is where our dance form originated. This style has a folkloric feel and is about a group of dancers working with a set movement vocabulary that allows dancers to create dance in the moment without choreography. Dancers use the vocabulary and body language to communicate through dance. 
See an example here:

Tribal Fusion is a more modern interpretation of this earthy style. Combining the techniques of Tribal Style Improv,Hip Hop, Classic Westernized dance, and American Cabaret Bellydance to create a style that is serpentine, smooth, and a bit on the funky side.

Class Descriptions:
Level 1 American Tribal Style Bellydance  - Open to New students :6 week course
This beginner friendly class will guide students through the fundamentals of this unique and joyous dance that celebrates dancing together! This earthy, grounded, and spirited dance was first created by San Fransisco's Fat Chance Bellydance and Carolena Nerriccio.

Level II American Tribal Style & Dialect

This class adds to the American Tribal Style Improv vocabulary by adding not only additional ATS technique but also new movements known as "dialect" steps that are specific to a certain group/school/style.  Students concentrate on developing improv technique in a supportive environment. Zills are required. Level I American Tribal Style Improv is a prerequisite.

Level III American Tribal Style & Dialect

This class starts to move more and more into improv practice. Experimentation of formations, transitions, and new movements occur weekly while continuing to develop strong improv technique. Zills are required.

Level I Tribal Fusion:The Roots

In this course focus is on the foundational movements of Tribal Fusion bellydance, including proper posture, arm placements, and the muscular, serpentine movements inspired by hip hop, yoga, modern and world movements all that are hallmarks of this style.

Level II Tribal Fusion:The Limbs; Concepts & Combinations:

This course is designed for dancers interested in the multi-faceted world of Tribal Fusion. Each class in this 12 week course will take on a different area of the wide world of fusion exposing students to musicality, technique, and excercises to help students develop their own toolbox of movements that will later become their personal style. Students must complete Level I Tribal Fusion before joining this class.

Datura Style™ with Kindle Open to all levels -ongoing class
This style was formed by Rachel Brice, which combines earthy and sensuous body movements, contrasting with sharp pops and locks, and adding a flair of cabaret influence. While studying this style, we'll be conquering everything from controlled and disciplined technique of serpentine movements to earth-shattering shimmies. Each week we'll look at technique warming up with a technique study, then hitting the floor hard to learn different steps/movements (working both left and right sides) while practicing with formations when the focus calls for it! If you are new to belly dance, you are more than welcome to the class- we'll be reviewing arm/ foot placements, body posture, and break down of movements. Follow along and have fun!!
WHEW! Come start the new year with me and immerse yourself in Datura Style™!
