Dedicated exclusively to {American} Tribal Style Bellydance, participants and teachers from all over Europe and beyond converge in one place to share this rapidly evolving dance form.

Aptly named "Umrah", which means pilgrimage in the Arabic language, this festival provides a

platform for dancers of all levels in an inclusive and safe environment for dancers to experience,

experiment, create, enrich their own dance, learn from master teachers, share moments and laugh with fellow dancers. Umrah differentiates itself from other festivals by moving to a different city each year - veryrevolutionary! Host cities so far have been: Biarritz, Nimes, Barcelona, Rennes, Marseille, Prague & Lyon... So, not only do you get to study and enjoy this amazing festival, but also an immersion into a different culture!What's not to love? Amy Sigil (Unmata) is the godmother of this festival and the figurehead of this community; she inspired and encouraged Djeynee to organise this festival. We aim to create an inclusive society; to

this end, we offer workshops at affordable prices and some free ones!!!!We also put on

experiences (picnics, excursions etc...), a Hafla (participants) as well a street party to showcase

our beloved artform! There is something for everyone - why not make it a family holiday in the beautiful seaside town of

Viareggio, Tuscany in 2016?

Show :

Because Tribal UMRAH festival is popular and has to remain so. Because its first goal is to promote the Tribal Bellydance. Dancing in the street will attract pedestrians that, of course, will stop to watch you guys, blown away by your beauty and talent. All dancers are performing for free, ready to share the dance and spirit.

Teaching at Tribal Umrah :

There is no application to fill. The Tribal Umrah teachers are called, respecting the linage first.

- Can a teacher teach more than 1 year at Tribal Umrah ? -

Except Amy Sigil, who is the godmother, teachers change every year. Why? To offer the opportunity to European Tribal Bellydancers to learn from the maximum of teachers. Unfortunately, we cannot afford to bring all our Masters overseas for 1 festival, but we did the very our best!!!
