Kalash Tribal is the name of Kelley Beeston’s dance troupe as well as being her own registered dance name.
That’s all a bit of a mouthful but it basically means she’s qualified to teach ATS® belly dance.
Kelley is a regular visitor to the FCBD® Studios in San Francisco and has completed General Skills and Teacher Training certifications several times. She was selected by her master teacher and mentor Carolena Nericcio-Bohlman, together with her dance and business partner Megha Gavin, as one of only 10 teachers worldwide to undertake the first ever intensive Advanced Teacher Training in June 2015. In 2016 she was honoured to help teach both General Skills and Teacher Training in Barcelona alongside her master teachers.
In 2007 after attending Egyptian belly dance classes Kelley discovered ATS® but little did she know she was about to embark on the most amazing journey of self-discovery and become completely engrossed in this dramatic and eclectic dance form. The cultural roots, rhythms and music together with the camaraderie, costumes and ethnic jewellery encompass her love of all things tribal. She has an absolute passion for travel and staying with tribal people, delving into the past and up-cycling old textiles and junk.
As a seasoned traveller she loves to teach and share her knowledge of this wonderful dance anywhere in the world.
