Fusion Bellydance is an umbrella term for Tribal Fusion Bellydance.
Tribal Fusion, also called Transcultural Dance, was founded around the 90s in the United States, from where it spread across the world. Tribal Fusion is a Western style of Bellydance, in which dancers usually fuse elements from different dance styles, for example, popping, hip hop, flamenco, kathak, etc.
The dance combines isolated, flowy movements with strong accents. Besides soft elegance, it has power and strength. The dancer can use different props, such as swords and finger cymbals, zills.
Nowadays, there is much discussion about the terminology of Tribal Fusion. For example, the term tribal is being abandoned in many cases. Therefore, the term Fusion Bellydance is mainly used on this webpage.
