What exactly is Tribal Fusion Belly Dance?

It's a contemporary dance style, born and bred around year 2000 in San Francisco, derrived from ATS (American Tribal Style). Both Tribal Fusion as well as ATS, have the same foundation: a sequence of moves of middle eastern descent.

Tribal Fusion blends specific elements from different dance backgrounds: from traditional (African, Balinese, Flamenco), to classic (Indian or Persian), ethnic (Egyptian) or even modern (Hip-Hop, Break-dance, Pop Locks). Unlike ATS, soloists/troupes start to dance on a preset choreo. Costuming changes according to each dancer's style. Music also changes to become more electro or western. Today, you can see different kind of Tribal Fusion, such as gothic fusion, burlesque fusion, vintage fusion, urban fusion.
