Greetings! I have many amazing muses within the tribal fusion community; I buy their DVDs, watch their videos, take their workshops--and I am very grateful for their inspiration. However, when it comes to inspo outside our little belly dance community, I look to Mary Helen Bowers of Ballet Beautiful. Her workout videos are definitely a staple in my fitness routine and she is a MAJOR inspiration in my life. Don't be intimidated! Just remember: you do not have to be a ballerina to train like one!

Please enjoy a snippet from my very first performance of 2017! YAAAAY! Not the best quality video, but a nice glimpse into what I am doing these days. This performance was part of an artists collective in Marin County and I'm very proud to be a participant. I am thrilled to be dancing (finally) with a vintage piece of assuit and I absolutely LOVE how it looks on stage and on camera. Although I do a tiny bit o' ballet in this piece, I find that slow, slinky tribal belly dance moves work quite well with The Dying Swan. I don't think I will ever get tired of this music.
Here is a collection of photos and favorite quotes from 2016. Coming soon, an essay on my obsession with The Black Hood. Happy New Year!
A nice, healthy dose of tribal fusion inspiration. Rachel Brice...love you mama!
P.S. UR KILLING IT.
This is the place where I track future performances and announce updates in the Blackhoodygrrl world. There is also bits of poetry, musings and eye candy, always keeping with the theme of Sacred Dance.
