|Organization:||Gaia Tribal Belly Dance|
|Description:||Gaia Tribal is an Alaskan troupe that performs a unique style of belly dance called Tribal Group Improv. The origins of this style come from American Tribal Style® which was originated on the West coast by Carolena Nericcio, of FatChanceBellyDance®. In this style of group improvisational choreography one dancer leads a series of dance movements while her fellow dancers follow. The lead dancer changes throughout the performance. Our style of dance incorporates traditional Middle Eastern dance with dance from other cultures including Spanish, African, Asian, Indian, and gypsies form around the world while utilizing the idea of group improvisational choreography. This fusion of dance is displayed by the diverse and colorful costuming we wear. This creates an incredibly dynamic performance that can never be duplicated. Gaia believes deeply in the tribal philosophy which is founded on the strength of women and that dance is community based and interpretive within a set series of movements.
Our Troupe is named for the mythical goddess of creation in honor of our desire to create and dance together.
