Barajagala Tribal Bellydance

Category: Dance
This is not your mother's belly dance! This is American Tribal Style (ATS) belly dance as created by FatChanceBellyDance director, Carolena Nericcio (

Created in the 80's in San Francisco, by Carolena Nericcio, this American dance is a unique dance form which combines classic Egyptian belly dance and folkloric steps with a good dose of Flamenco stylization. It is "tribal" in that it is a collaborative and improvisational dance between a group of dancers. It fosters feelings of liberation and unity, of sensuality and power.

The flamenco aspect of this dance infuses the dancers with a feeling of power and elegance, the belly dance moves celebrate the artistic sensuality of women and the tribal nature of ATS belly dance encourages a sense of community.

Even from the first class, women experience a sense of beauty and strength within themselves from participating in this unique dance form.
