About Tribal Belly Dance
Chimera Tribal Belly Dance Troupe

Tribal belly dance was created in the United States. It is a community dance, with Arabic dancing at its root. The dance and costuming is influenced by cultures from throughout the world.

Pure tribal bellydance is completely improvised. The dance consists of steps and movements that are known to all the dancers in the group, who follow a leader. Everyone gets a chance to lead, if they want to.

Sometimes tribal bellydance moves are choreographed into a dance. This type of dance is known as tribal fusion.

About Lyra

I began dancing at the age of 3 when I started going to ballet classes. Later on I also did tap, jazz and contemporary dance.

As a member of the London-based Dancercise troupe I performed at many high-profile venues including Earls Court, Olympia and the Empire, Leicester Square. I have also competed at national and international level in martial arts disciplines and am an Indian Head Massage Practitioner and Reiki Master.

I have performed and attended workshops, classes and training sessions in tribal, tribal fusion and gothic belly dance both in the UK and the USA. I was inspired and humbled by the warmth, sisterhood and togetherness I experienced at the Gypsy Caravan™ Dance Studio in Portland, Oregon in 2008.

I love the way tribal belly dance is accessible to anyone of any age, size and shape. Everyone can look and feel beautiful doing this all-inclusive style of dance. I believe that, through this dance, we connect with our inner selves and the others with whom and for whom we dance, freeing and growing our spirits to be the beautiful beings of our destiny.

I want to share in and spread the love, joy and empowerment to as many people as I can.
