Description:Kalash are a really really mixed bunch of women based in Devon led by Kelley an FCBD® certified teacher and Sister Studio – but we all have one thing in common - a passion for American Tribal Style® (ATS) bellydance. Our name, Kalash, was originally taken from The Kalasha people (a tribe tucked away in the Hindu Kush mountains of Northern Pakistan) but is also a sacred water pot used in Hindu puja. We are a non-profit making troupe and for many years have supported Survival International - the only international organization supporting tribal peoples worldwide www.survival-international.org . Kalash regularly perform at fundraisers, parties, restaurants, events and festivals as well as running weekly classes, workshops and hosting our own events and Oasis. Oasis came about in December 2008 when we realised that many people live in an ATS desert and do not have a teacher or fellow dancers nearby. So every few months we have a get together for anyone who wants to come along and dance their socks off, share ideas and practise. Oasis has gone from strength to strength and we are delighted to see that the idea is catching on both here in the UK as well as the US. Oasis is backed up with a tribal forum on our website for help and information on the dance, costuming and chat. There are links to relevant websites and an up to date listing of local events as well as the big national events. It’s a great way to keep in touch with us and the ATS world - www.kalash-tribal.co.uk
