I have much to be elated about. First of all, I started this troupe so that I would have happy dancers with whom to play. That dream has become a reality. Secondly, Tribe Elation is able to dance where we live, and that includes Troupe Trolley every summer. We have enjoyed our rides along the waterfront with our expert driver, entertaining narrator, and belly dancer Camille at the helm. Tidelands Park has become a favorite spot to dance informally, with a spacious grassy dance surface, and one of the best views in the county!
It has been a long journey for me, this belly dance ride I'm on. As I look back on the calendar, I see the chronicle of dance over the last decade, and note how it has changed me. I am now celebrating five years of American Tribal Style belly dance under my belt. I am approaching my three year anniversary of teaching ATS. My closet pole is bending under the weight of dance costumes; my bindis are getting bigger, my back is stronger, my sisters keep coming back for more. I love this hobby, and now that I am retired from teaching public school, it is all-consuming. Let's dance!
