Synchronized group belly dance, without choreography
Tribal Odyssey is like ATS® but with a folkloric feeling reminiscent of the Egyptian Ghawazee.
The short, versatile combinations give you creative freedom:
The stage positions allow the group to face ANY direction
The formations work with ANY number of dancers
The torso and arms are held naturally, without extreme arch or lift
There are more finger cymbal patterns!
The benefits of group improv vs choreography
A troupe doing group improv can easily adapt to any performance space, with any number of dancers, and also has more choice of music and costuming!
It also benefits the dancers themselves: group improv seems to increase dancers' awareness of their stage presence, as they become aware of their place onstage, and aware of the performance space. Group improv helps them become more skilled in transitions, hearing rhythms, following the music, and more.
