What Do We Publish?

Tribal Calendar focuses on events that are primarily featuring or for the various dancers in the Tribal Community. This could include ATS, ITS, additional Improvisational Styles, as well as the full complement of Fusion styles of belly dance that come from the Tribal traditions. And while sometimes there are combination events that include more than just Tribal style belly dance forms, the calendar typically does not include belly dance events or competitions that focus on non-tribal styles (even if “Tribal” is one category in the competition).

How Did This Site Get Started?

Tribal Calendar was originally a collaboration between two dancers: Tina in Moscow, Russia and Cat in Los Angeles, CA. They met at Tribal Fest 11 and instantly established a strong friendship and a love for dancers from all walks of life, throughout the world.

Now Cat Ellen of CaySwannDance manages TribalCalendar.com with the hopes that this can help support a loving, accepting, and cooperative dance community.

We’d like to thank all the event organizers who have been sending in their information over the past several years, allowing more dancers worldwide to find inspiration and true friendships at tribal bellydance festivals and events.
