What is Gypsy Caravan Tribal Bellydance®?
This signature GCTB Tribal styling is not only an eclectic, invigorating, and elegant fusion based on urban, folk, ritual, trance, bellydance, and modern dances, but a true lifestyle! I have created this rich blend of contemporary movement, with roots in ancient dance styles, based on a common non-verbal language and group improvisation, which is esthetically pleasing, spiritually grounding, and physically rewarding.
Not only do we use this dance, which is ultra feminine, intoxicatingly sensual, earthy and organic, extremely beautiful, and profoundly moving, but we also add lots of different cross-training techniques—like Dance and Desire, journaling, yoga, Tribal Grooves ™, fitness, meditations, nutrition, and more— to get a full body, spirit, and brain workout. Then you will be raring to take over your part of the world and be a happier and healthier you. Desires met, better posture, deeper breathing, more confidence, stronger in your body, more grounded on the earth. And beautiful!
Want to know more about this dance?
I am the innovator of this soulful Gypsy Caravan Tribal Bellydance® style that has become more of a lifestyle, full of that bountiful creative force found deep within.
Assembling my lifetime of dance, music, art, and healing work, and since initiating this life-changing Tribal Bellydance style over 25 years ago, I have been teaching and training around the globe, to casual dancers and the pros, and you, too, online.
I have an Associate’s degree in Business, a Bachelor’s in Fine Art (Photography), and a Master’s in Publishing and Writing, and wrote the book: Tribal Vision: A Celebration of Life Through Tribal Bellydance, but the hands-on experiences of dancing with and teaching YOU…. well…nothing compares to the rewards of sharing with you tools and skills, and then I have the joy of witnessing you bloom with empowered creativity, and living your dream of being a healthy vibrant woman.
As a dancing, glamping, honkytonkin’ music fiend, I am honored to bring you the inner and the outer work with all the accouterments to live a rich, joyful, life full of the Tribal Quest! Whether you just want a workout, desire some great dance tunes, or want the full rainbow of Tribal dance teachings, I am glad you are here…

“You’ll remember me as the mad woman tearing up and down Wollongong Mall trying to find her car after the workshops last Saturday, but I just wanted to say what an absolute oasis of inspiration and pleasure that rainy day was for me.
That afternoon of your workshops refreshed me and revived me as if I’d been to a day spa (well, okay, I had lots of muscle fatigue ;p)and on my drive home, I used the time to listen to music and go through all the beautiful moves you taught in your classes.
Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful ideas and dance style. I already had your book and much of the music, and now have the complete set of your fabulous dvds; so perhaps on your next journey, I’ll be a candidate for your Collective Soul workshops. Wishing you continuing safe journeys and much happiness along the way.” – Margo Walker, ONYXtribal
