Sahara Tribal

Sahara Tribal, an Organic Dance Experiment, is an evolving artistic project aimed at rekindling the spirit of Organic Dance (the creative origins of Sahara Dance). Participants work collaboratively to create pieces in the genres of American tribal belly dance, folkloric fusions and experimental dance. Members seek to explore and develop new frontiers in belly dance.

Sahara Tribal

Sahara Tribal pieces blend the innovative spontaneity of American Tribal Style belly dance with the grace and beauty of traditional raqs sharqi. Our mission is to provide fresh and funky entertainment melding Eastern traditions and Western aesthetics.
