Tribal Fusion belly dance classes start today

The Tribal Fusion House starts today; 7 intensive weeks’ classes introducing Tribal Fusion dance style. Tribal Fusion developed out of a lineage of innovative dancers and teachers. In the late 60s in San Francisco, belly dancer, Jamila Salimpour, developed a ‘tribal style’/aesthetic to her dance performance with her company, Bal Anat. In order to tailor belly dance performances to suit the styling’s of the California Renaissance fairs of the time, Jamila drew from the tribal dances and costuming of North Africa and the Eastern Mediterranean.

By the early 00s, Tribal Fusion’s lineage had been passed on and developed by generations of students to the point where the name becomes more of an umbrella term used to encompass a plethora of fusion styles – urban fusion, dark fusion, contemporary fusion, cabaret fusion, goth fusion, etc.

Increasingly, Tribal Fusion dancers are drawing from contemporary dance – both theoretically and in form. In many ways this is a difficult combination to truly fuse as the forms are so different – for example belly dance tends to be relatively static in space, upright and concerned with intricate articulation in the torso, while contemporary dance includes inversions, floor work, use of space and often is concerned with meaning/concept.
