The Belly Dance Directory

Kylea Hartley – Tribe Vibe Dance

Kylea has several years of training in both Middle Eastern and Tribal Style belly dance, and became South Australia’s first ATS teacher in 2004.  Her unique style of Tribal Fusion she describes as “blending the fiery strength of Flamenco Gypsy with the earthiness of traditional belly dance”.

Dance teaching is in Kylea’s blood (her mother was also a dance instructor).
