American Tribal Style® (ATS®) belly dance—a family-friendly and fully improvisational art form—will make your event unforgettable!
Tessera Tribal is a studio troupe of FatChanceBellyDance® based in the San Francisco Bay Area. We‘ve performed on stages big and small, in restaurants, at private parties, and weddings. We can't wait to work with you to come up with something special to add to your event.
Influenced by the folkloric dances of India, the Middle East, Spain, and North Africa, ATS® is a modern form of belly dance with an old world feel. Every performance is a wholly improvised and unique display of swirling skirts, ornate adornment, and camaraderie between dancers.
The performance that Tessera Tribal Belly Dance provided for our 25th Wedding Anniversary was outstanding, and added a magical presence to the night's celebration!!! They were very professional, and flexible in working with us, and had all guests mesmerized by their beautiful dancing and costuming. They worked well in the venue of a patio dining atmosphere, and danced in and among dining guests and servers, captivating all in spite of people eating and visiting. I would not hesitate to hire them again, and would recommend their performance to add a special touch to any gathering, be it ceremonial, or informal.
