Come take a step back in time to the glamorous 1970s &1980s-style American Cabaret, the first fusion style of belly dance that set a precedent of creativity that has continued until today. Our costumes shined with sequins, beads and glittery fabrics. Our shows consisted of the classic 3-part or 5-part dance that included playing zills, veil work, standing and floor taksim, drum solos, entrances and finales, and usually having fun and interacting with the audience with a tip section. The style was extremely diverse (America is a melting pot!) as well as physically and technically challenging.  The American Cabaret gave birth to the American Tribal Style belly dance. In this unique workshop, you’ll learn fun steps and combinations from the ‘70s & ‘80s that can be used even in your dancing today!
