Tribal Style Bellydance

This is a fun and challenging dance form that is joyous, empowering and builds community & camaraderie. Culled from the folk dances of North Africa, the Middle East, India, and the Mediterranean; Tribal Style Bellydance is an unique fusion of ancient dance forms. Women of the ‘Tribe’ learn a set vocabulary of moves, and performance is presented in an improvised lead-and-follow format. Together they weave a beautiful tapestry of dance that mesmerizes audiences. This dance is for women and by women regardless of age, shape or size. We dance for ourselves and each other, celebrating our own uniqueness and beauty with every step. No dance experience is required. Please wear comfortable, form fitting clothing such as yoga pants and a tank top. Avoid boxy T’shirts or skirts that will obscure your shape. Jennifer A. Parilo, BSN, RN
