I found this word AMERIKANTORAIBARU on a Japanese Dance studio site for an American Tribal class. Sound it out...American Tribal. How cool is that?
Here is also a link to another Japanese dance company. Looks to have a much more Classical Raks Sharki influence. www.dancearab.com
The more link hopping I do the more neat stuff I find.
Now playing: Rupert purring (not a band...real live animal)
mood: something greasy
Two of my favorite-ist things (yes, that's a word) Bellydance AND Japan!
- Belly Dancing in Japan article
- www.lisa-school.com the studio from the article
- www.raksmiho.com a Tokyo Tribal Troupe
- Japan Bellydance Tribe on tribe.net
- Mishaal Dancer and teacher in Tokyo
Got more Japanese Bellydance links? Post them in the comments.
FYI: for pages not in English, you can paste the web page's address in a Google search. When it lists the link in the search there will also be a "translate this" link. Click it and it will give you a translated, albeit messy, page to view.
