“The most important thing in dance is the idea. If you know what you're dancing about, then everyone else will see and feel it.”


Tribal dance is a modern ethnic dance.

A symbiosis of many dance styles, so incredibly and succinctly combined with each other.

The prototypes of the movements are taken from the dances of various cultures. The main components are: flamenco, Arabic and Indian dance.
