    As far as what our fellow Texans are saying...ignore and enjoy! We only live once!!
    There is an ATS studio on the Northeast side that will be teaching tribal fusion in the coming months and tribal and zambra mora studio on the South side that teaches tribal fusion every once in awhile. Both studios are not as well known as the Egyptian/American Cabaret styles.

    Big Grin Ats?

    What is an ATS studio? Would you happen to know the name and how I may contact them?

    American Tribal Style I know that some people (including myself) believe that Level 1 in ATS is helpful before moving on to tribal fusion.

    New Day Belly Dancing's classes are on hold except for the tribal fusion classes. Here is their siteClasses

    Amber Lotus Dance Studio is strictly ATS/ITS at the moment, but they are planning to expand to tribal fusion too. I can say from personal experience that the instructors are really nice and are ready to answer any questions you have. Their site is here Classes ‹ valorijenne

    I forgot there is also a strictly tribal fusion troupe called Zombie Bazaar that offers classes. Here is their Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/ZombieBazaar

    I hope that was helpful!

    Default We must hang together or we shall surely hang separately

    Reading thru posts on these forums tells me that lots of people must live where there's a bunch of belly dancing competition, because they seem to have the luxury of choosing different styles or nit-picking origins, music, costuming, labelling, etc. With fellow belly dancers like those, who needs enemies? But here in small-town Texas, whether tribal or cabaret, one thing is sure - the public at large thinks we're mostly strippers anyway! I've heard the suggestion that calling what you do Raks Sharki, or oriental dance, is a way to avoid the negative misconceptions that some people have about "belly dance." Personally, I just say I'm a belly dancer - the negative opinion some may have about that phrase isn't any of my business - and then let my actions speak for me. I am moral, and modest, AND I belly dance. So there!
