Moria Chappell

ODISSI TRIBAL FUSION BELLY DANCE offers the dancer a methodology for bringing this rapidly growing art form into her belly dance repertoire.

As harbinger of this specific style of fusion, Moria was the first to bring these two aspects of movement together and teaches the way in which she learned, created, and now performs this unique combination of esthetics.

Passed from Guru to student for thousands of years, Odissi Indian Temple dance is one of the oldest classical dance forms on Earth.

Moria spends time annually in Orissa (the homeland of Odissi) intensively studying and performing this exquisite dance as well as researching and learning weekly from her Indian-born guru in America, Ratna Roy, who was a pupil of the last living Mahari (sacred temple dancer).
