About Tribal Unity

We are an American Tribal Style Bellydance Group based in Essex, with a Sister Group based in Wales.


We teach and perform ATS® all over the country an abroad.  ATS® is an improvisational style of Bellydance developed in the 1980's in San Francisco by Carolena Nericcio and Fat Chance BellyDance.  With this style you learn cue based movements, to enable you to dance in the moment and follow a leader.
