Jamila and Bal Anat are often described as the original 'tribal' dancers... the root of a tree that sprouted many branches, including Fat Chance Belly Dance and Compton's Hahbi Ru. Jamila organized the group when the local Renaissance Fair complained that her student dancers were over-running the event, performing everywhere they could find a blank space and an audience. Jamila drew on her circus background to design a format that is still famous (and imitated) today.
