Master tribal bellydance teacher, Jill Parker from San Francisco, kicks off her Australian tour in Byron from February 10-12.

It'll be a full weekend of workshops (such as Demystifying the Drum Solo) with a performance showcase on Saturday night, February 11, at Ocean Shores Community Centre.

Tribal bellydance is different to the more well-known cabaret style in that it's a group dance with an earthy aesthetic that borrows from India, Spain, the Middle East and even modern dances such as hip hop.

The performance event, Illumina, will feature Aradia (incorporating fibre-optics and UV art in her performance) Byron's own tribal bellydance troupe The Barefoot Gypsies, Jill Parker, Melusina, The Hush Gypsy and Drumdance Bellydance (a group from Toowoomba that features live drummers).

Tickets are available now online at Kids welcome.

For more info phone Belinda on 0420 398 590.
