The Extended Tribe is a four part training by Elsanne that teaches how to dance Tribal style belly dance from the beginning: tribal technique and formations, creating the Tribal essence through the danced experience. The group learns to dance together based on the Elsanne format, which is learned in the “Maestras del Tribal” teacher training course. The format is an Improvisation Tribal Style (ITS) language based on the Salamat Tribal format (Terri Walden in Prescott, Arizona). Fun, dynamic, and very feminine, the steps and movements challenge the body and invite to the party.
Four modules, or intensive weekends, create “The Extended Tribe”. Thirty-two hours of instruction include: Tribal Style History, Tribal Style Philosophy, Tribal Posture and Technique, Rhythmic Movements and Slow Vocabulary, Zils, Formations, and Group Movement. These modules provoke personal reflection and growth as an integral part of the process. The student learns a new dance vocabulary, and also gains a new perspective on her dancing in this world.
