A Tribal Belly Dancer

          Belly dancing has been a part of tribal cultures for a very long time, to express emotions and to celebrate certain rituals. It focuses on movement of hips, arms, and waist, and the dress wear is different for each culture or occasion. This piece focuses on tribal belly dancing and the movement of the dancer and the beauty of it. I used less intense colors to make the body and dance seem more intimate and personal.
