Tribal Fusion Bellydance

Sam is a Fusion dancer with Durban-based BellyFusion, the first local studio to extensively combine Bellydance with influences of Modern, Latin American, Bollywood, Hula and Spanish dancing. She teaches student classes and trains the performance troupe in Tribal Fusion technique and choreography. 

Sam’s teacher and studio director Alison Oosthuizen has a background in Modern and Ballet, but consistently pushes her students to expand their range and improve technique through increasingly challenging fusion choreographies. This has made BellyFusion a popular choice for high-profile corporates and private clients alike and landed a steady stream of performance gigs for the professional troupe.

Sam also studies American Tribal Style® with Left of Centre Dance (accredited FCBD Sister Studio) and performs with fellow teachers Ioleen Lazenby and Tarah van Wyk as the Durban Tribal Collective. Along with PMB-based teacher Micah van Schalkwyk they have formed KZN Tribal, which aims to raise the standard of Tribal and develop its community within our province.
