Tribal Bellydance Classes with Stephanie Barto


Stephanie was the Midwest pioneer of American Tribal style bellydance. She began teaching in 1996 with a certification from Carolena Nerricio. director of FatChanceBellydance in San Francisco. Over her 20+ years as an instructor and troupe director of RMH, Stephanie has innovated a unique interpretation of tribal improv (ATS) and modern tribal fusion upon a solid foundation of basic bellydance movement vocabulary.

Class Attire and Equipment

Ideal student attire is a short exercise top or tank top worn with a skirt, pantaloons or yoga pants. For footwear, we recommend ballet slippers or jazz shoes, but it's also fine to just wear socks.
