Feminine and fierce

Tribal Bellydance Superstar Moria Chappell travels worldwide performing and teaching the beautiful art of tribal fusion bellydance.

Popular teacher and acclaimed performer, Moria is heralded as an innovator in costume design, stage make-up, and choreography. Her style, both feminine and fierce, commands an intensity and precision that epitomizes tribal fusion isolation and individualism.

Beginning her dance career in Atlanta, GA in 2001 with Awalim Dance Company, Moria moved to San Francisco in 2005 to study with and later join The Suhaila Dance School, The Suhaila Dance Company, and Bal Anat, from which she learned the extreme muscle control and isolation fundamental to her current style. Later that same year she joined The Bellydance Superstars and began her world travels.

Moria has appeared in several Bellydance Superstars performance DVDs - "30 Days to Vegas", "Babelesque: Live from Tokyo", "Tribal Fusions" (Vol. 1 and 2), "Tribal LA: Live in Los Angeles", "The Art of Bellydance: Live from Shanghai", "Tribal Superstars", "3D Superstars" (Vol. 1 and 2), as well as the new "Bombay Bellywood: Live from Los Angeles" DVD. She is also featured in two instructional DVDs, "Tribal Fusion Fundamentals" and "Introduction to Bombay Bellywood".

In 2016, Moria has taught and performed in virtually every major city in the world. She teaches in Washington DC on a regular basis and continues her Odissi dance and spiritual studies by traveling to India annually, and by studying with Dr. Ratna Roy.
