Vespertine Tribal

Belly Dance and performance art

Vespertine Fusion

What is it?

Tribal Fusion Belly Dance is a modern form of belly dance which was created by fusing American Tribal Style belly dance and American Cabaret belly dance. Artists frequently incorporate elements from Popping, Hip Hop, Egyptian or Cabaret belly dance, as well as movement principles from traditional and folkloric and classical dance styles. Vespertine Fusion is devoted to self empowerment. Belly dance is an amazingly transformative art form,  where creativity can blossom and grow!
