Barocco Tribal is the fabulous performance duo of Tamsyn and Roberta, bringing together tribal dance style from the Far East and America.
Roberta is a teacher and performer of tribal fusion and fire dancing, fusing belly dance with various traditional dance forms from Asia. For the last three years, she has been studying, teaching and performing in Korea, Thailand and Indonesia.
Tamsyn is a tribal fusion and vintage orientale bellydance performer and teacher, schooled from an early age in ballet, jazz and martial arts. She first learned bellydance when she was 10 years old, and has since studied and performed in San Francisco, Boston and the UK.
Tamsyn is currently in the USA deepening her dance training at Smith College, MA. For the past year she has studied transnational fusion under acclaimed teacher and mentor Donna Mejia, while working and training with the Sovereign Collective. As of summer 2012, she is working with Bodywave Bellydance, and Snake Dance Theatre of Boston. She is also continuing to work with professional tribal fusion and Oriental bellydancers in and around Boston, MA. She will be returning to Edinburgh occasionally when she will give special performances. In the meantime, watch out for appearances by the Apsaras dance troupe led by Roberta.
