Sunroom Belly Dance

a performance troupe of American Tribal Style® dancers

directed Nancy Young.


Sunroom Belly Dance is a troupe of American Tribal Style® (ATS®) belly dancers. We perform at restaurants, festivals, haflas, and belly dance shows in Los Angeles, Orange, and San Bernardino Counties in Southern California. Our performances are spontaneous group improvisations, with the dancers communicating through a seamless system of dance cues. We typically choose our dance songs from the beautiful folkloric music of Asia, the Middle East, Eastern Europe, and North Africa. Improvised dancing to intriguing world music creates vibrant, exciting performances with the dancers in close connection with each other.

Sunroom Belly Dance has been performing for many years, previously under the names Torso Dance Collective and Tribal Flow. We returned recently to the troupe's original name of Sunroom Belly Dance. The troupe has always been a collective, with dancers from the Southern California ATS® community invited to participate on a gig-by-gig basis. This form of troupe is made possible by the group improv format of American Tribal Style® belly dance. We can meet at the stage door, say "Hi, how are you?" and hit the stage for a lively performance.
