Who is Tribal Moon Belly Dance:

  Tribal Moon was founded in 2005 by Kathy Stahlman, an early member of  FatChanceBellyDance®.  As a member of the famous San Francisco troupe she had the opportunity to appear in instructional videos and perform in a variety of venues from international festivals to cafes and private parties.

Regardless of where she is based, or who current troupe members are, Tribal Moon has become known for creativity, grace and mesmerizing performances. Tribal Moon classes are designed to help students of all levels develop a solid dance foundation with a special emphasis on technique, dance creativity and compassionate communication. Kathy also teaches a popular 20-hour certificate course focused on signature Tribal Moon steps. She also has a new workshop venture, Road to Tribal Fest, co-created with the lovely and talented Arikah Peacock. (See Road to Tribal Fest on Facebook for more info)

She is frequently invited to teach at the world’s leading Tribal Festivals including Tribal Fest USA, Tribal Fest Mexico, Cues & Tattoos, Something Tribal This Way Comes, Bellies For Bellies, Belibeya Mexico, and dozens of workshops coast-to-coast and around the globe.

“I took Kathy’s class for close to 2 years and she is one of the best dance instructors I have ever had. I feel I am much better dancer because of her and she is one of the reasons I still dance.  She cares deeply about her students to learn the moves correctly and to have good foundation and at the same time her class is lots of fun.
