Video clip of American Tribal Style® group improvisation June 01, 2017 12:00
American Tribal Style® dance: a set vocabulary of movements and system of non-verbal cues that allows a group of dancers to improvise a performance... it can easily be mistaken for a choreography!
American: because the dance form was developed in the late 1980's at the FatChanceBellyDance® studio in San Francisco, California.
Tribal Style: because it combines elements of Egyptian bellydance and Flamenco with traditional dance movements from tribal people living in Northern Africa, India and Central Asia.
Every year American Tribal Style® dancers from around the world gather together for three days of intensive workshops called the ATS® Homecoming. During the participants showcase, dancers from thirteen FatChanceBellyDance® Sister Studios, including Elysium Tribal, perform here as the 'Lone Wolves' troupe. The music and costuming choices were selected ahead of time, but many of the dancers had never met before the event. With no time to rehearse prior to the show, we confidently walked onto the stage and let the magic of group improvisation take over!
This edited musical clip contains a portion of "Nefertari's Dream" by Phil Thornton and Hossam Ramzy. (available on iTunes)
