About the Tribe:
Established in 2001, Chicago's Blue Lotus Tribe is one of the up-and-coming forces in the tribal bellydance world. Heralded for their tight improvistaional skills, original choreographies, impeccable technique, and party-like stage presence, Blue Lotus Tribe is working hard to bring the Midwestern tribal scene to the forefront.
As workshop instructors, Blue Lotus Tribe is fun, challenging, creative, and instructive for all levels of dancer. They have been honored to teach at some of the United States' well known belly dance events such as Tribal Fest (CA), 3rd Coast Tribal (TX), Elevation (CO), TribOriginal (NC), and dozens of other smaller events throughout the country. They also host the Midwest's largest tribal belly dance festival every June, Tribal Revolution.
The lotus flower often represents the seven main energy centers within our bodies. Each lotus chakra occupies its own space and unfolds to radiate a color of the rainbow. The fifth chakra, the Blue Lotus, resides in the throat area and dictates our creative energy. The throat center forms a connection between mind and body. This connection allows for artistic communication via our physical bodies. It is our Blue Lotus that enables us to claim our identity as dancers and to share our passion with you.
