    Default To Tribal or not to Tribal?

    Some of the members have suggested creating a board on our forum here that is specifically for Tribal Fusion, and related styles. What do you think?

    I think it's a great idea! I get the feeling that there may not be a message board for those who do Tribal, so having a forum section for them might make them feel more welcome here. We can probably learn a lot from each other, and I'm pretty sure we have members here already who do both.

    Im not saying there won't be problems and pitfalls, but I think it's something that's very doable.

    I don't see how it will hurt to give it a try. I'm not sure how many tribal fusion, etc dancers on on this forum. Be interesting to see what happens from it.
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    1. Beginning dancer. Knows nothing.
    2. Intermediate dancer. Knows everything. Too good to dance with beginners.
    3. Hotshot dancer. Too good to dance with anyone.
    4. Advanced dancer. Dances everything. Especially with beginners

    I would too - I'm in a "Dark, Gothic, Tribal Fusion class", although I'm no expert at it. I drive the instructress nuts, "Cabaret arms Zorba, those are Cabaret arms!!" she's always yelling at me!

    I'm dipping my toes in tribaret - cracking some out for a show in November - so I would love love love a special tribally area.

    I've been home-studying tribal for a few years now and did some skype classes with Nina Martinez (Gypsy Caravan) until she wasn't able to teach on skype any longer.

    I did Tribal classes with members of my own troupe who taught for awhile. While Egyptian is where my heart is, I'd participate.

    I love tribal! I was taught West Coast tribal by my first teacher who was student of Jamila Salimpour, so i learned not only the mechanics, but also the way of working in a group. Then i had several workshops with tribal/tribal fusion teacher who came to Greece, and i was lucky enough to have lessons with Baraka, an american tribal fusion and goth teacher who lived in Greece for some years before going back to the States. I also had tribal lessons with any other teacher from Greece who had things to teach in tribal. I keep attending workshops and now i plan to start studying from DVDs as i have not found any other tribal teacher in Greece to continue my study. In the meantime, i work on my own tribal projects and given that the music we have here is ideal for this style, i take advantage. I also teach the style or parts of the style to my students, i consider it a style they should have some picture about, even if they will not want to specialise in the future.

    I think it is worth giving it a go to see if more tribal/tribaret dancer will come on board & share their experiences & love of the style with us. I do enjoy watching videos of tribal/tribaret, doubt I'll ever learn the style at this stage of my life, but would enjoy a good discussion.

    Dance is like glitter, it not only colours your life, it makes you sparkle, you find it everywhere and in everything and it's near impossible to get rid of. (unknown)

    After a couple of terms I decided TF is not my cup of tea bellydance-wise so I wouldn't be any more interested in TF discussion than, oh I don't know, Irish folk dance or salsa. But if people are into it, why not. Maybe it will bring in some new members and start a few heated debates. I miss the heated debates.
