What is this tribal bellydance?
Tribal bellydance is ancient dance reinvented. Its bone structure resembles oriental and folkloric bellydance, styles that draw on thousands of years of dance tradition. The style is strengthened and augmented by Flamenco, Indian dance and various other dance forms.
Tribal bellydance is an old-world spirit evolving new movement vocabularies. Snakey, strong and powerful.
Dark Nile specialise in American Tribal Style® and Tribal Fusion. These styles cover a broad and ecclectic mix of music, varying from folkloric Egyptian to Dubstep. Costumes also vary ranging from modern fusions of ancient textiles and decadent sparkles. Please see our Gallery for examples.
The Dark Nile dancers seek to innovate. We have trained with the originators and stars of tribal, a modern style of bellydance, in both Australia and the US.
Our goal is to create dynamic, evocative performances that surprise and resonate with audiences.
We offer bellydance classes in Brisbane and perform at a wide variety of occasions.
