What is tribal belly dance?

Tribal style is a mixture of both choreographed and largely improvised dance performed by a group of dancers.Tribal style is a mixture of both choreographed and largely improvised dance performed by a group of dancers. There is usually a “chorus” of dancers, often forming a half-moon shape, and from the chorus one, two or three dancers emerge to take centre stage. One dancer leads and, using a learned vocabulary of moves, they improvise their dance. They rely on cues indistinguishable to their audience, the phrasing of the music, the “chemistry” between themselves and eye contact to create a seamless transition between moves. Each dancer has to remain alert and “connected” to fellow dancers. The overall effect relies on all dancers, not on a particular soloist.

  1. Dear Angela, Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your exquisite photos of Rashani. It is rare in dance that a photo can convey not only form but energy and connection among dancers and you have done just that. I’m Dublin based and put together these great women dabcers– I feel blessed to have had such a wonderful experience. Thank you for sharing it with us. And, moreover, thank you for capturing the magic on film. Best wishes,wendy
