Mimi Fontana is a driving force in the rapid growth of New York City’s Tribal Belly Dance community. In 1997, after years in competitive ice skating and a decade as a professional touring and studio musician (bass guitar), Mimi Fontana turned her prodigious artistic attention toward ethnic dance – primarily American Tribal Style (ATS) belly dance In 2006, she founded Manhattan Tribal, New York City’s first ATS dance company. Studying with Carolena Nericcio, creator of ATS and Director of Fat Chance Belly Dance (FCBD) in San Francisco, Mimi received multiple certifications in the FCBD format, and was granted Sister Studio status in 2008. In addition to regularly teaching multiple ATS classes in NYC, and the workshops she is invited to conduct nationally and overseas, Mimi is an AFAA certified group fitness instructor specializing in Mat Pilates, Boot Camp and TRX Suspension Training. While endeavoring to preserve ATS belly dance in its true form, Mimi and Manhattan Tribal add their own brand of NYC flavor, infusing their performances with high energy and exciting combinations that have become their signature style. In 2011, World Dance New York released “Tribal Revival: American Tribal Style Bellydance Variations and Combinations with Mimi Fontana”. Mimi’s goal is to spread awareness of the beauty and complexity of American Tribal Style Belly Dance. For more information please visit: www.ManhattanTribal.com
