TRIBAL BELLY DANCE WORKSHOPS
with certified Global Caravan Tribal Bellydance© Instructor, Principle Teacher, and Global Caravan Dance Company International member, Sherry Coffey
Tribal Bellydance is an exciting community oriented style—a fusion of urban, folk, and ritual dances—a contemporary blend of the folkloric, nomadic, and classical dances of the Middle East, Spain, India, Egypt. It is esthetically pleasing, spiritually grounding, physically rewarding—a shared celebration of women.
Tribal belly dance is about the empowerment of the dancers as they improvisationally and collectively dance in their circle, a community of all sizes and ages. It is a dance for every body. And it is good for toning up, laughing, and feeling great in your body!
