At Florida Tribal Dance we pride ourselves in providing a well rounded dance experience that is full of thoughtful instruction that includes proper body mechanics, history about our dance form, an enriching group environment as well as fun and exciting lessons. 

We recommend that you start with the style you feel most drawn to, there are no right or wrongs. Whether you are interested in our fitness classes, or our structured technique classes we encourage you to go where you feel most draw to.

Our instructional classes are designed in a three level program; the Roots( Level1), Limbs(Level 2)  and Leaves(Level 3) of Tribal Bellydance
Whether you chose to walk the path of Tribal Style Improv, Tribal Fusion or both all students start at Level 1: the Roots.

We want to foster an environment that is both challenging and encouraging all the while assisting students in becoming the dancers they want to be.  To do this our Leveled program of classes begins at the foundation of each style and builds both in technique and stylization as students progress. 

We know that many students also are coming to our school for a great workout so in conjunction with our technique classes we offer fitness classes that can be taken by themselves or are a great companion to your technique class. Our fitness classes often change from month to month to offer new and exciting ways to work our dancer bodies.

Not sure what the differences between Tribal Style Improv and Tribal Fusion are? Read more below.

Tribal Style Improv
is where our dance form originated. This style has a folkloric feel and is about a group of dancers working with a set movement vocabulary that allows dancers to create dance in the moment without choreography. Dancers use the vocabulary and body language to communicate through dance. 
See an example here:

Tribal Fusion is a more modern interpretation of this earthy style. Combining the techniques of Tribal Style Improv,Hip Hop, Classic Westernized dance, and American Cabaret Bellydance to create a style that is serpentine, smooth, and a bit on the funky side.
