American Tribal Style: Drawing from a vocabulary of dance combinations and dance cues, the dancers communicate with one another non verbally. ATS movements are inspired by folkloric dances of the Middle East, North Africa, Spain and India. The knowledge of the dance vocabulary allows ATS dancers from different regions to collaborate even if they have not previously danced with each other. Carolena Nericcio-Bohlman created this format in 1987, you can learn more about it at Fat Chance Belly Dance .

 

The Salimpour Legacy: Candace has been training with the Salimpours for over 12 years and holds her certification in both formats. She is Suhaila Level 2 certified and Jamila Level 1 certified. Candace has a passionate desire to stay connected with the past while moving forward in the present. Her deep connection to the Salimpours and their formats always remains constant throughout all that continues to change.
Jamila Format: Jamila Salimpour is the originator of tribal belly dance in America, and has been influential in belly dance for over 50 years. She is also the first one to solidify a format of terminology in belly dance still used today.
The creation of the legendary dance troupe Bal-Anat evolved in 1968, when the opportunity to perform in an outdoor theme festival, The Renaissance Pleasure Faire, challenged Jamila Salimpour, to create a variety show which one might see at an Arabian Festival or Souk.
From being a member of Ringling Brothers Circus in 1942, Jamila implemented that format in creating Bal Anat. As a belly dancer, Jamila Salimpour worked with many dancers including Algerian water glass dancers, Tunisian pot dancers, Male Tray dancers, magicians, and presented many varieties of entertainment. The Sword dance, Mask dance, and Snake dance were seen for the first time in Bal Anat. The resulting show became a show featuring tribal dances from North Africa and the Eastern Mediterranean.
