Tribal in the Tropics


Tribal in the Tropics is a tribal gathering, bringing Gypsy Caravan sisters together to share our love of dance, community and beauty.

To acknowledge and honour each other, ourselves, our teachers.

The workshops this year will be presented by Master Teacher Nina Martinez-
Gypsy Caravan Tribal Bellydance technique and format.

With guest teachers Deirdre Macdonald, Scotland and Richelle Spencer, Fremantle.

Tribal in the Tropics is held in Cairns and there is a fabulous range of accommodation, shopping, restaurants and cafes to enhance your stay.
