It’s the Belly Dancers……practising a modern style of belly dance this American Tribal Style Belly Dance was inspired by folkloric dances of the Middle East, North Africa, Spain and India.  It seems that there is no choreography, each dance is improvised.  The dancers learn moves and cue these in formations, communicating together through their movement…Wow !

Karuna Tribal Belly Dance is a new American Tribal Style troupe based in York, this is their first performance of the year together and we are very excited to have them here at the Wetherby Festival.  They will be dancing to some very traditional music  -  as well as to a few pieces you might recognise !
