an extraordinary performance troupe


Kalash Tribal, based in Devon, are one of the UK's best known and much loved FatChanceBellyDance®Style troupes


They perform a wonderfully eclectic dance that fuses influences from Indian folkloric dance and Spanish flamenco with roots in traditional Middle Eastern and Northern African dance to weave a tapestry of improvisational choreography

If you’ve never seen this dance performed you and your audience will be mesmerised by the slow hypnotic movements combined with earthy energetic steps as the dancers spin and shimmy in unison whilst playing finger cymbals to world music and Middle Eastern drum rhythms

Their rich and vibrant costumes mix both old and new with authentic tribal textiles and heavy metal jewellery from along the Silk Road to create a spectacular display of flying skirts and twirling tassels

  • every performance is unique - tailor made for your event from music to lineup and costuming 

  • each set is around 15 minutes - choose from one set to several spread across a 4 hour time window 

  • entrance and captivate audiences of all ages 

  • perfect for weddings & handfastings, festivals & fairs, outdoor events
, private parties & celebrations (except stag do's - we don't do those!)

We are known for our professionalism and the joy we take in our dance, let us share that joy with you and work with you to  make your event extra special


"a truly remarkable group of dancers, Kalash Tribal, artistic performers in their own right. Stole the show during Exeter's street art and music day yesterday (yes even more than the green caterpillar) Their presence is awesome! Just would like to say again how superb and amazing you all are, really striking and so skilled at your art"

You were all outstanding and your costumes were really something to behold

Kalash performing at the Corn Exchange in Exeter last night was fantastic and certainly was the highlight of the show

Rowan Tolley    

"…….a large crowd had gathered in the square outside Debenhams, and the spectators were engrossed in a performance by the Kalash Tribal belly dancers. And what a performance it was. The women were decked out in colourful silk costumes and covered with metal jewellery that sparkled and rang as they span around, dancing to the sound of Indian music. I reached for my camera………."
