Our goal
is to serve as a common ground
for the purpose of mutual support and understanding
of the ancient art of danse orientale in Utah

Thank you for your ongoing support!

I want to thank all of you for continuing to support this show.  It is a show that is near and dear to my heart as well as my daughter.  It goes back to 1985, to the beginnings of the SLC dance community.
When Yasamina & I created Tribes there was a real need for teachers and students to get together, for a unifying of the dance community.  At that time I don’t believe anybody was doing that on a large scale, if at all.  

Tribes gave and continues to give  teachers a chance to see what other teachers are teaching. Students could really see who was out there and what was being taught.  

We always encouraged our students to take from as many teachers as possible.  It was a model that almost all the teachers used and I think still do. Everyone benefits, teachers and students and the general public.  

I hope that you see and will continue to see the real value in Meeting of The Tribes.  It is a very unique experience.  One that we all can be proud of.

Sincerely, Jason, Ari and Yasamina
