Tamarind TroupeTransformations® dance aesthetic is influenced
most heavily by Carolena Nericcio-Bohlman (graceful display of the
body and the clear, organized improvisational vocabulary for groups
known as FCBD® Style), Jennifer Nolan (attention to detail,
discipline, and grace), Devi Mamak (her poised stage presentation,
flamenco stylizations, and her movements), Masha Archer (presentation
of dance as "moving sculptural composition"), Zoe Jakes
(intense body conditioning, fantastic DanceCraft® format, and
amazing inspirational showmanship), Rachel Brice (serpentine and
flow stylizations, restorative body conditioning techniques, and
choreographic composition), and Tamalyn Dallal (feminine grace in
movements, vast knowledge of history of the dance, and heavenly
arms and hands).
format can work within multiple styles of bellydance as additive
movements and group work/solo presentation or as stand-alone components.
in 2018, a complete teacher intensive with certification in the
format was made available for those looking to immerse themselves.
