The first step is to complete the Certification in our Collective Soul Level One course (if you haven’t yet) to get the big picture of GC Tribal including basic technique improvement, history, and the opportunity to dig into your dance dreams. Become the dancer you want to be! Each level of Collective Soul leads you to the corresponding level of Teacher Training. You can read up on Collective Soul here.

Happy certified Italian dancers!

  • Breaking down and teaching Gypsy Caravan Tribal Bellydance® technique
  • Many ideas that make a good teacher
  • How to not only do the correct moves, but to speak them
  • How to raise the energy and excite others with this powerful and evocative dance
  • Dance class organization with our incredible format
  • Business savvy- oh yes, I want you to be successful
  • and much more…

I want you..

  • I want you to work your body.

This is about getting started and improving upon what you already know, and how to share the dance with others.…

Akasha says:

Akasha Mae:  

This course has reinforced/reminded me again how much I love the dance, all the fun and beautiful new steps, and that I get to teach them. Also, adding more connections in my brain to the steps that have similar styles and feelings to be used together more often, too – not changed, but added to that idea and framework.

         I do feel like you help me to focus and plan and spell out my plans and ideas for dance, and that is always useful. And the meditation and mindfulness practices that you share, help me focus, remain calm, and remain connected to source and sane, in dance and life

Terri Bdancer:

” It was so worth it! Paulette Rees-Denis you provided so much information and truly helped equip me to teach. A friend of mine also teaches bellydance (another style) and she is so impressed with the thoroughness of my notes and binders from your online course.” I love this! Thanks…

Martha picture multi cultural day“I wanted to take a few minutes to thank everyone that welcomed me in their dance lives during my stay in Portland during Teacher Training and Collective Soul. I am still riding such a positive high from the lessons, the dance, meeting everyone, and learning from the wonderful Paulette Rees-Denis. She is a stunning human being, so loving and so worthy of admiration. I hope to stay in touch with everyone and hopefully seeing our paths cross again because we’re part of such a beautiful thing called Tribal Bellydance.”

Collective Soul and Teacher Training experiences have helped me be a better dancer in every way. They have helped me grow as a person and develop confidence in myself as an artist.**GCDCI Tribal Fest-hilary- 2013 _086

But through the process of becoming a teacher under her mentorship I have learned so much more:

how to be a conduit for students’ own evolution, how to read people and see their strengths, how to explain things differently to different people, how to be an ethical leader, and how to trust my intuition.

Through these experiences I have discovered my passion for teaching and have now been able to successfully develop and lead my own classes and troupe.

Thank you Paulette, for all your wisdom, and for creating this beautiful style of dance!

“With a bit of friendly persuasion by my dance teacher, Becky, I enrolled, along with some of my fellow tribal sisters, for Gypsy Caravan Dance Company’s Collective Soul 1 two day workshop with Paulette Rees-Denis.

This was an absolutely fabulous experience within my journey with dance. Very worthwhile ‘biting the bullet’ so to speak and taking part in this artistic, innovative training with Paulette Rees-Denis of Gypsy Caravan Dance Company.

monique, p, toni-CS1For me Collective Soul 1 was very much a personal discovery of the dancer within.  Paulette who is truly a master of her craft, a very down to earth lovely lady and an wonderful teacher. She encourages you 100% to be the best dancer you can be.

This has given my confidence as a dancer quite a boost. The journey has been a challenge, sometimes very challenging, as I have moved through the beginner moves to the intermediate. 

On a final note I must say that the highlight of my journey to date is gaining accreditation in Gypsy Caravan Collective Soul 1 with Paulette Rees-Denis. She is an absolute inspiration.

-Toni Grainger, Albany,WA

Thank you, Paulette, for a memorable two days of Collective Soul One. It took me three days to descend from my Tribal CS high, and in the process I experienced a wide range of emotions and new awareness of body and mind. To say that my “gift box” has expanded to overflowing is an understatement. These new gifts include a much deeper connection with the music, a deepersecuredownload copy connection to my whole body in movement, as well as a deep connection to the courageous feminine spirit – watching the women that I danced with bare their souls to receive your and Amanda’s teachings. One of the biggest gifts was to able study with you in person, to feel your encouragement and support. I am regretful that I didn’t make plans to continue on with the teachers training, but am hopeful that there will be enough interest for you to add another CS1 & TT1 session sometime in the coming months. I have already decided that I will retake the CS to reconnect, and then continue into the TT1 and CS2 intensives when it’s available.

This Tribal journey is fascinating, joyful, and soul expanding, and I am so very grateful to you for your life’s work in creating this beautiful and powerful dance and paving the way for all of us.

– Wanda Walker, Washington

“I enjoyed the Collective Soul Training throughout the experience, but now that it is done I look back and realize I enjoyed it more than I knew. I say that because I was so in the moment during classes and testing that only now settled at home can I really look back at all I was given and how excellent the experience was.

I got more than I had hoped for. The experience dispelled my concerns about certification programs and allowed me to test 1044255_270533483088968_549707648_nmyself and immerse more into the Tribal Culture.

It will allow me to have more confidence in my movement. It gave me a better understanding of our music and zilling. It allowed me to broaden my relationships with other dancers and finally gave me and my troupe a common experience to build on.

 I have never been instructed by such a warm, charismatic woman as Paulette. She draws out feelings and movement that you did not know you had inside. She is tough and gives nothing away but this only makes you more aware of what you have earned. I am a teacher by trade both in education and dance and I have taught all ages so it is with confidence that I recommend Paulette as an instructor and creator of a fabulous system of movement and education. She knows her stuff!

Thank you again for your knowledge and the care that you gave us. This was so needed in my life right now and in my dance. 

– Amy Tucker,, Alaska

Quite simply, Collective Soul was a life-changing experience. Spending so much time with Paulette and like-minded dancing sisters … so many beautiful, creative hearts! Dancing, playing, talking tribal, chilling, sharing meals and laughter and sunshine. I learned so much about the dance, about life and about myself!

526027_10151193067774571_2106365960_nTechnique was covered thoroughly, which was exactly what I needed, but Collective Soul reached far beyond that. It reached into the music to which we dance; into those rhythms which move our souls and our hips and into how we can honour and respect them in our dancing and playing. And it reached into the very heart of tribal; into what it is that brings us together as one Collective Soul.

Collective Soul has made me so much more aware of my technique, in particular my posture. It has helped to build my confidence in dancing and in sharing that dance. But more than that it has helped me to become more aware of myself as a dancer, of why I dance and of how this beautiful dance speaks to me. It has been a most significant step on my dance journey … towards becoming the very best dancer I can be.

Paulette is an inspirational teacher, mentor and friend.  Her wealth of knowledge, experience and passion are shared so freely and with such love that she cannot help but fire up the same passion in her students – a burning desire to honour her teaching and dance. Yes, she challenges, but also supports and encourages all those who learn from her to be the very best that they can be. I am honoured to have her as part of my dance journey = long may it continue!”

– Cayte Lawton, England

“Thanks for your words, sharing, encouragement and direction. I carry them with me. What you do provides so much to so many people, and in so many different ways. I’ve seen it. I’ve listened to it. And, I’ve experienced it!

You said something on the lines of, ‘the learning from our time during Collective Soul will continue well after you leave this studio.’ You were right, Paulette. And, what’s surprising me the most is that the learning isn’t just or necessarily happening in the dance. All I can say at this time is, ‘Thank you!’

– Tymmera, Oregon
