Instructor: Sarah al Nour-Like a beautiful tapestry, Tribal Fusion is more than the sum of its parts.

Resonating with the myriad aspects of our modern times, Tribal can incorporate Flamenco, hip- hop, modern, jazz, vintage, burlesque, ballet and more influences for an intriguingly familiar, yet exciting work of art.
Dress: Loose, comfortable clothing (yoga, hoop, and basic dance wear) encouraged. Bare feet or dance sandals preferred.
