About Orchidaceae Urban Tribal dance company

Orchidaceae Urban Tribal is a dance company where Tribal Fusion Belly Dance meets Hip Hop inspired by Popping, Waacking, Vogue and Contemporary Dance. We try to melt the barriers of language, fusing our skills and knowledge through our different dance backgrounds. We are a collective of female dancers, artists, life lovers that work and think about the urban context and constantly seek the connection between several artistic strands. The definition of our work drinks of miscegenation of influences and crossroads of cultures.

We merge the traditional and modern, old and new, natural and built. We have the same passion for the stage as for informal presentation spaces such as streets, warehouses, factories and we move comfortably in both. We adapt to different realities with enthusiasm. We are natural freestylers.

Our family moves around the urban styles (Breakdance, House, Hip Hop, Capoeira, Waacking, Vogue and Tap), a more industrial and urban version of belly dance (Tribal Fusion Belly Dance) and Contemporary Dance.

We love to break stereotypes and be able to affirm our feminine side in several ways, never the same, just doing what we feel like to.

Moved by art our main expression is dance. We move with music and for the music.
