TRIBAL, A WORKSHOP ON BODY LANGUAGEThe Classical Tribal Dance is a dance totally improvised under a system of codified body signals. It works on equality, respect and connection in tribe, since all participants are leaders and followers, respecting communication mistakes and learning from them.The Tribal Dance recovers the sacred character of the ancient oriental dance, the improvisation and the previous connection to the stages, giving rebirth to the times during which the dance was closely linked to the connection with the divine.Anyone can practice this style, a special physical condition is not necessary.The oriental-tribal dance has a very intense work of internal musculature and body posture. This practice unlocks self-esteem and confidence in one's own body; increases body awareness and proprioception, mobilizes the pelvic region and the joints, tonifies circulation and prevents various pathologies. The workshop will begin with a brief contextualization about the origins, history and evolution that oriental-tribal dance has undergone since Antiquity to the present day, from Greece and Egypt, from the ancient civilizations of the Mediterranean, to the USA and its reinvention in the 60s.
