Since its foundation in 2009, Terpsichore association has been committed to helping people learn and share the fundamental values of tribal dance: well-being, cohesion and joy of dancing together.
Tribal dance or "Tribal Bellydance" is a new movement merging a multitude of traditional oriental dances and cultures from North Africa and the Middle East with other traditional dances from West Asia (Indian and Indonesian dance). Spiced up with a dash of more current dances such as hip-hop, classical or contemporary dances and smoothened out with a conscience conscience and well-being approched borrowed from yoga.
