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 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.
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.
