Vespertine Tribal

Belly Dance and performance art

American Tribal Style® Belly Dance 

Instructed by Stephanie White

What is it?

American Tribal Style® Belly Dance is a method of improvisation choreography, using movements inspired by folkloric dances of the Middle East, North Africa, Spain, and India. This style of dance uses a vocabulary of movements and cues allowing the dancers to communicate while dancing. The knowledge of the dance vocabulary allows ATS dancers from different regions to collaborate even if they have not previously danced with each other. Though it is a modern dance, the feeling is ancient and connected, with its vibrant costuming, music, use of zils (finger cymbals), movements and interaction between the tribe of dancers.
