Rachel Brice first fell in love with belly dance when she saw the famous Hahbi' Ru in the early nineties. She saw gorgeous, proud men and women with strong carriage and charisma adorned with spectacular antique tribal jewelry, facial tattoos, and rich textiles, it changed the way she saw beauty instantly (check out Hahbi 'Ru  in the Roots of Tribal Fusion Playlist).

The roots of "Tribal Fusion" belly dance begin with Jamila Salimpour's codification of a belly dance form. She taught that form to Masha Archer (San Francisco Classic Dance Troupe), John Compton (Hahbi' Ru), Katarina Burda (Aywah!), her daugher Suhaila, and thousands of others who have gone on to form their own interpretations of the dance. Masha Archer taught Carolena Nericcio, the founder of American Tribal Style. Carolena Nericcio taught Jill Parker, who was an ATS dancer for over 8 years, then began to fuse American Cabaret, and Tribal Fusion was born. These groups and individuals are the primary influences for what became known as Tribal Fusion, as it fuses what is commonly known as Tribal Style with many other dance forms, including Kathak Classical Indian Dance. Here's a brief and chronological look at the dances of our foremothers and fathers. Respect, RB
