Tribal Belly Dance Roots

Weekly Tribal Roots classes are on hold for the time being. Watch this space for details of weekend workshops coming soon.

Steeped in history but thoroughly modern at the same, these classes will provide you with a firm grounding in Tribal Belly Dance. We’ll be taking influences from North African folkloric dances, from Jamila Salimpour and old school Tribal Fusion, and from Paulette Rees-Denis’ Gypsy Caravan format, melding them into a seemless, organic improvisational language. Each class starts with a thorough warm up, followed by a breakdown of technique and drills, then group improvisation using the moves learnt, and ends with a full cool down.

Known for her infectious love of dance and passionate teaching style, Catherine guarantees you’ll have the Tribal bug in no time!
