Ratnavali Tribal Bellydancers.
I watched these lovely ladies perform today at the MBS Event in Chelmsford, and of course I had to have my photo taken with them 🙂 its an American Tribal Style Belly Dance created and developed by Carolena Nericcio-Bohlman in San Francisco, California in the 1970s. It is based on and takes its influence and inspiration from traditional and folkloric dances from the Middle East, North Africa, Spain, Turkey, India and more. These traditional steps have been modified and put into an improvisational group context whereby tribal style means that the dancers work together to create a unique style with both a traditional and modern flavour that gives a ‘tribal’ look. Performances are exciting and unpredictable as they are totally improvised through a series of subtle cues and transitions made by the lead dancers.
For more information, if you fancy giving a go Maxine runs classes in Colchester & Hullbridge
