Tribal Fusion 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 belly dance. Often electronic music with heavy beats or a gypsy vaudeville big band style of music is used to reflect this modern yet edgy belly dance evolution.

This class starts with a Jazz / Ballet inspired conditioning and stretch workout important for any belly dancer wanting to gain a strong dance technique while strengthening and sculpting the body to improve posture, body confidence and clean footwork.
