July 20th-21st: Flamenco for bellydancers and Tribal Fusion ♥
This summer, we have invited Bellali Austria, an accomplished flamenco dancer and teacher from Mexico, to teach a flamenco workshop especially for Tribal bellydancers. As American Tribal Style and Tribal Fusion bellydance evolved, they absorbed influences from many different dance forms. The beautiful posture and strong arm positions in Tribal are inspired by flamenco. Therefore, we want to give Tribal dancers a glimpse into this beautiful dance form, without having to stomp around in uncomfortable shoes!
Bellali has her dance training from Mexico and Spain, as well as having taught flamenco in Japan and here in Norway. Her passion for the abillity of dance to trancend cultural and language barriers has driven her to study many different dance forms, and to collaborate with dancers of diverse backgrounds.
