Designed by Asharah and Jennifer Hodge, Saffron Tribal integrates the technique of both Suhaila Salimpour's and American Tribal Style belly dance creator, Carolena Nericcio's formats into a unified tribal style belly dance program.
Tribal style belly dance is known for its emphasis on confidence, community, and artistic expression. Saffron Tribal technique focuses on these key elements as well as proper body alignment and an understanding of the muscles driving each movement to ensure healthy dancing for years to come.
Students begin by learning the fundamentals of belly dance movement, emphasizing tribal belly dance movement, before moving on to learn the group improvisational American Tribal Style and/or the modern tribal fusion style.
Saffron Tribal also emphasizes the history of tribal style belly dance and its place within the larger belly dance community.
