Through the eyes, hips, and stories of Paulette Rees-Denis, an internationally known dancer, teacher, and producer, Tribal Vision shows us how women have learned to celebrate life and community in the fast-growing and immensely popular world of Tribal Bellydance. There are few books about dance on the market, and none that takes us into the fascinating world of Tribal Bellydance with one of the primary innovators of the rapidly growing style. Tribal Vision not only tells Paulette’s stories, but also delves into the many reasons why women choose to dance this particular style. Tribal Vision explores the trancey and mesmerizing dance; the ethnic-to-groovy costuming and other opportunities that have given many women a chance to start their own business; the addictive spiritual, healing, and ritual aspects; but most importantly, the community experience of American Bellydance. Through Paulette’s artistic vision and moving experiences, we see how tribal bellydance is a celebration of womanhood—physically, emotionally, and spiritually. She has brought women together from around the world to dance and network with each other using the foundation of this ancient dance made contemporary.
****Just in case you have not heard about this book, here are some reviews! I would love you to read it…many thanks and here’s to this great dance called LIFE!
Beautifully Produced Book!,
Marilyn J. Mcleod “Coach Marilyn” (San Diego)
It’s evident the author took care when creating this work of art. Sharing her experience of tribal belly dance on so many levels, it’s both an introduction and guide to a beautiful tradition. Thank you, Paulette!

Tribal belly dance is growing in my area like crazy, and this book was a fabulous introduction not only to the history of Tribal belly dance in the US, but to a dance philosophy I really admire.
Paulette’s personal history is as fascinating as the journey of Tribal dance up the West Coast from California to Oregon. The pictoral sections give life and color to her history, and the sections focusing on community and teaching really spoke to me. I aspire to a similar dance philosophy in my own life: participating in a community where a strong sense of safe female expression is vital and experimentation in dance is encouraged. I’d recommend Tribal Vision to anyone interested in belly dance as a creative outlet or way of life.

Bravo to Paulette Rees-Denis. This wonderful book is full of magnificent photos and Paulette’s personal journey is the perfect book for any person who is interested in Tribal Belly Dance. This book is wonderful reading. I highly recommend adding it to your dance library.
A Belly Dancers “MUST HAVE”
This book is a definite must have for any belly dancer…..whether you are a follower of the Cabaret / Tribal, Gypsy or Fusion style of the dance there is something for everyone in this book. Paulette is one of the keepers of the dance…..Please don’t take me wrong there are others out there that are also keepers of the dance….Paulette is just one of them. With this book she lays it out….she draws you in…and allows you to feel the spirit of the dance. I have read this book many times since I bought it….I put on some Gypsy Caravan music and I open the book and step into the wonderful world of dance. Thank you Paulette. As Oliver once said….”Can I have some more….”

Your book, Tribal Vision, has meant so much to me. I have smiled, laughed, and cried throughout the whole thing. Your words have been such a refreshing look at the dance for me, and I greatly needed it! Thanks so much! I think you are AWESOME!!!!

“Paulette – I just received Tribal Visions for my birthday this week and I absolutely love it. It is such a beautifully written book, so full of passion and love for your craft. I found it so inspirational and I finally realise the effect that Tribal Bellydance has had on my development. Not a day goes by that I don’t acknowledge how lucky I am to have found this wonderful dance and an amazing group of women to share it with. Thank you so much for sharing your insight and stories.
Paulette, I started reading your book this evening and I have been up all night devouring it! It is so brilliant and divine, I can’t stand it! It is so fascinating to hear all about the path that lead you to where you are today. I love the pictures, your stories about learning, teaching, adornment and how the dance transforms women. Best of all is how you articulate the bliss and the soul of tribal style. I’m amazed to read your thoughts about the magical interaction and the co-creation that happens when a group of women dances in unison. The stories and quotes from your dancers all come from different perspectives (of course!), but together they give this really full picture of how unique and special our art is. This quality of tribal dance is something that for me, is such a deep and sensual experience I find it hard to put into words. But you’ve done it! Hurray! My only regret is that your book wasn’t published yet when I was writing my thesis. I was working with these concepts and there was nothing available at the time to use as source material that could really capture what I was trying to convey. Many congratulations and thanks for your beautiful creation…
With Love, Hilary
Kudos for Paulette Rees-Denis – Tribal Vision I just received the book, Tribal Vision, by Paulette Rees-Denis. I have only yet read the first 3 chapters, but all I can say is, “WOW!” This is one of the most refreshing books I have read. It touches on many dance related subjects that are close to heart. It gives a nice history of American Tribal Style belly dance as well as Paulette’s own personal history. Tribal Vision also touches on belly dance classes, troupes, and the impact the dance has on women. Several personal insights by various dancers are given, along with beautiful, full-color pictures. This book is a must read for all belly dancers. It is also a very beautiful book and would just look absolutely gorgeous on any coffee table, but you MUST read it! I especially love the way she talks about the connection belly dance helps women make with themselves and others. A truly life-changing read.
