Tribal Grooves ™ is an exciting new dance form of Gypsy Caravan Tribal Bellydance® to activate your body, mind, and spirit! We move with non-stop, high-powered blood pumping moves combined with sweetly sensual and slow circular, feminine patterns using body isolations with some improvisation, lead and follow, and choreographed dances. Dancing with worldly exotic, stimulating music and contemporary tunes will raise the energy and momentum and get your groove on!

Your Teacher certification includes one year membership of monthly emails, choreographies, video clips, music recommendations, and private FB page for the Teachers. Please be familiar with Gypsy Caravan Tribal Bellydance® basics (CS1 is great preparation!).
