What is Alternative Serpentine Bellydance / Tribal Fusion Bellydance ???
Alternative Serpentine Belly Dance / Tribal Fusion Belly Dance – is a powerful, mysterious and hypnotic style of belly dance. A new generation of belly dancer has evolved and this particular form of belly dancing takes elements from popular dance styles such as hip hop, flamenco, classical Indian and ballet which are fused together to create this exciting new wave of modern fusion belly dance.

The studio and what to wear..
Find me at Urdang 2 every Wednesday. The studio has floor to ceiling mirrors with sprung floors. Wear comfortable clothing you can move in, go bear foot or wear socks for comfort, alternatively a jazz or ballet shoe if you have sensitive feet. Yes you can keep your belly covered however a fitted top helps both you see your movement better in the mirror. Leggins and a tank top works best, wear a simple hip scarf for your comfort if you prefer to.
Dedicated students have regular performance opportunities at fun community based events, bellydance haflas and steampunk events across the London area throughout the year. Find out more in class and let me know you are working towards performance. Performance is never compulsory it is only for when you feel ready.
