It was a lovely mid-september night at Caféteatret in Grønland. The ATS® class at Oslo Tribal Bellydance School had been rehearsing for a couple of weeks. And here we stand all of a sudden – just finished performing to “Luxor Baladna”!

ATS Level 1 and Level 2 class performed one slow and one fast music piece each. The Tribal Fusion class performed Miriam’s choreography to “Kakore Ja” by Helm. Emelie, Anne, Susanne, Miriam and Jorunn did solos, and Tribal Comets did a group improvisation. :)
Every summer Siri Ydstie from Oslo Magedanssenter arranges a summer show. Both students and teachers are performing, and the dance styles this time ranged from Raqs Sharqi to Bollywood.

The ones who hadn’t gone on holiday dressed up for a very private hafla 6 June. First song we performed to was “Running in the Alleys” by Mizna. Then we danced to “Taksim” by Canconier and the last song was “Zar” by Satori. All improvised American Tribal Style® bellydance in different formations. Thank you to Solveig, Anne, Emilie and Miriam for the beautiful performance!
