Cyndi Cyreigna Elliott has been studying American Tribal Style® Bellydance, as created by Carolena Nericcio director of FatChance Bellydance®, since 1995. She first saw American Tribal Style® (ATS®) performed at an open air market in California, and immediately fell in love. ATS® is an artistic expression of a woman’s power, confidence, and femininity. For over 20 years, Cyndi has worked and studied to master this dance and bring it to others. Through her performances and classes, Cyndi strives to teach the full strength, friendship, and unity found in this dance. Cyndi Cyreigna Elliott became Kansas\’s Premier FatChance Bellydance® Sister Studio in 2011 and now, in 2016, has achieved her Advanced American Tribal Style® Teacher Certification and is now a Sister Studio Continuing Education Instructor. She only wishes to plant the seed that Carolena has given her and watch it grow. Her dance company name, Irie Tribal, is derived from the Rastafarian saying, ‘Irie,’ which stands for ‘I Respect I Eternally,’ and is a word that conveys hope and happiness–exactly the emotion Cyndi endeavors to create through ATS®.
