Tribal Grooves Bellydance Fitness: Will return in 2019!

Level 1 Hatching

If you are just starting your journey in Gypsy Caravan Tribal Bellydance®, this is the class for you! Learn the basic foundational steps for this specific dance vocabulary and improvisational group dance. Learn to "speak" this dance language. Discover what all the fun is about, connect with fellow dancers, smile and have a blast learning this transformative dance form.

All students, regardless of previous bellydance experience, begin their journey in Level 1.

Level 2 Fledging

Strap on those zils and get ready to level up! Level 2 students grow their GC tribal vocabulary in this class, adding in arm patterns, traveling, and layers to previously learned movements. We expand on the core families of movements and add in fun and funky new combos too. Dancers become part of the tribe and discover how to dance using different tribal formations. We also begin to look at cultural and musicality in this class, learning drum rhythms, costuming and more!

Admittance to Level 2 requires instructor permission. Generally, students complete a minimum of 6 months (3-4 sessions) of Level 1 before advancing to Level 2.

Level 3 Soaring

This class is designed for intermediate and advanced tribal dancers who wish to build a stronger dance vocabulary and connection with their Tribe of fellow dancers. In this class we will go deeper into the Gypsy Caravan dance style, learning more movements, variations, and combos but also developing duets with orbits, fades, and more. Dancers in this class prepare for performance opportunities and dive into a full range of improvisational situations and formations.

Admittance to Level 3 requires instructor permission. Generally, students complete a minimum of 1 year of Level 2 before advancing to Level 3.


Tribal Grooves

Tribal Grooves is a fast-paced follow along fun fitness class. Worried about doing the moves perfectly? Here the dance is not about technique, but rather the pure joy of feeling how great the moves can be in your body. And, of course, burning some serious calories with a cardio dance blast! Each one hour class includes a warm up, a bit of conditioning, and fabulous follow-along songs that will give you a workout that’s tribal bellydance-inspired.
