The Gypsy Caravan Dance Company

delight in their exciting projects and possibilities with the continuing explosion of tribal! Together and separately these global dancing mavens are ecstatic to share with you this exquisite flavor of  Gypsy Caravan Tribal Bellydance® as it celebrates life, each other, and the community with you! Paulette and her dancers teach around the world, fulfilling her dream of Taking Tribal Global, empowering women, bringing dancers together to unite the tribes, and living life to its fullest, every day.

The journey is about getting everyone dancing, sometimes together, sometimes alone…moving our bodies to honor and love ourselves, our individual and collective creativity.  The main focus is to feel freakin’ fabulous and to honor each other—tribe mates, lovers, friends. Through all that we empower the world with love and joy—that’s the trickle down effect!

Enjoy the Gypsy Caravan Dance Company’s gift of dance, as they share the magical energy and camaraderie of dancing together, the celebration of this beautiful planet, with the sheer joy of creating art with improvised and synchronistic movement based on ancient goddess influences, multi-cultural feminine dance stylings,  and contemporary dance!

And you can watch many performances from around the globe and over the years, here.

A mass of swaying hips, undulating bellies, hands upon hands upon hands with arms moving snake-like, strangely synchronous; watch closely as these powerfully sensuous women wrap you in their web of enchanting improvisation. Haunting horns calling you from the desert, earthly drums bring you back to the beginning of time; forlorn melodies sung from the deepest of souls, Gypsy Caravan invites you to join them on a journey back to the cradle of civilization. Woolen yarns, billowing silk, and jangling metal add texture to delight the senses, reminding you of the millions of women who came before us. A tribute to the past, created in the present, borrowing from many cultures and full of today’s urban spirit, feel your tribal soul coming to life, echoing our cries for life and freedom.
This dance is an esthetically pleasing blend of the folkloric, nomadic, and classical dances of the Middle East, Spain, India, Egypt, but with our contemporary twist as dancers of today. Physically challenging and spiritually grounding, this tribal belly dance is about the empowerment of the dancers as they improvisationally and collectively dance in their circle, a community of all sizes and ages. It is a dance for every body.
