Do you think every time you attend a belly dance show "I want to be able to do that too"? Well, good news: you can learn it! And if you think "I can't do that", I can assure you that you can. During a series of Tribal Fusion Bellydance classes, you will learn all the tricks and tricks of the trade.


You learn tight and flowing movements with the hips, chest and arms. In each of these movements, great attention is paid to the correct posture. You will discover muscles you never even knew you had.


Tribal Fusion is a very different style of bellydance than oriental bellydance. It evolved from oriental bellydance, but is characterised by a more grounded posture, tight isolations and a tough attitude.


It also draws inspiration from other dance styles and can be broken down into different disciplines based on the general mood. A few examples are Gothic/Dark Tribal Fusion and Gypsy/Gitana Tribal Fusion.

The course of a class looks like this. We always start with a good warm-up. Squats, planking, the “cat-cow”... We'll be doing all kinds of exercises.


Once you're loose and warmed up, we'll get you into the swing of things with some technique. Each move is explained step by step. Followed by some drill exercises to music. It is after all a well-known fact: practice makes perfect. Once you know a few steps, you will also learn some combinations or even some choreography.


We always end a class with a cooling-down. It's important to stretch after every dance class. Your muscles will be a lot less sore the days that follow.


Currently, I teach in Antwerp at the Sinner’s Dollhouse. Check their website to find out when the next tribal bellydance course will start. You can register for a course on theSinner’s Dollhouse website.


What should you wear for a bellydance class? Comfortable leggings or loose trousers or a skirt with a tight T-shirt, top or crop-top. You do not need shoes. We always dance barefoot. Dancing on comfortable flat shoes is of course always possible if it's more comfortable. We sometimes dance with some extra accessories, like a hip scarf with or without coins. You can always bring your own scarf, but if you don't have one, you can borrow one of mine.

Would you rather book a private class or a workshop? Ideal to expand your dance experience or just as a fun activity at your bachelor(ette) party. Contact me to discuss the possibilities.
