23 June 2003: Urban and Diaspora Tribes and students of ATS. Special Screening of the film "Urban Ghawazee" - Australia 'Premiere'! Urban Ghawazee follows the history of the development of American Tribal Style Bellydance and contains performance footage and in-depth interviews with Carolena Nericcio, Frederique David, Heather Stants, Michael from Azure and Kajira Djoumahna. This is the definitive ATS film. It gives clear first hand explanations of the style, it's development and philosophy by some of the most prominent performers and teachers of this dance genre today. 

Comments: 
"....mesmerising, puts tribal in the broader context....incredible performers...recognised some of our new moves, it's great to see where they came from and how they look in performance." 
"...when I saw what we were aiming for I felt excited - and a little overwhelmed - but mainly excited. I want to dance like that!"

"...great film...really showed me what's happening in ATS in America right now. The dancers were so inspiring and they said so many things I could relate to regarding body image, support, trust and the desire to do the best I can. It showed that ATS is so much more than steps and a great costume..." 

"WOW! and thank you. When can I see it again?"
