Hi! My name is Nina Martinez and my passion is Tribal Bellydance. I live and dance in a small town, called Innisfail in Far North Queensland, Australia. In the rainforest where I live we have built a studio dedicated to dance and community: The Temple.
This is the home of my tribe, Gypsyrain Tribal Bellydance.
The Temple is a sanctuary for women to dance and feel free: welcoming dancers from around the globe,to be a goddess, be themselves.
Many of our beautiful tribal pieces for sale are from Pakistan, Afghanistan and their neighbouring states. The jewellery and Tribal belts are sourced directly from artisans and crafts people, so our exchange helps keeps people in work, families in business.
Our format is based on the fabulous International teacher, motivator and dancer…..Paulette Rees Denis, paulettereesdenis.com.
This format focuses on Gypsy Caravan Tribal Bellydance® steps, group improvisation , connection and draws inspiration from ethnic, folkloric and contemporary dance. This is a unique dance style and is celebrated by women all over the world.
Through this format I am endeavouring to establish a vibrant and dynamic Tribal Bellydance community within Australia.
