There is also a private group for class members only.

NorthWind is a variety of Tribal Bellydance. Tribal style Bellydance originated in the USA in the 70’s and has spread around the world.

Tribal Bellydance focuses on the group performance, in contrast to Egyptian or Turkish Bellydance, where the emphasis is on a solo performer.

It is fun to do and good exercise. We regularly perform at our own dance parties and at other events.

Learning Tribal Bellydance in Yorkshire and Lancashire.

Chris Ogden, seen above, teaches Tribal Bellydance in three locations in Yorkshire and Lancashire. Each class is run in a friendly and supportive environment where everyone can learn the basics of this interesting dance form. You do not have to be super-fit, or even have danced before, it is a style that is non-impact and works with your body. Contact Chris through Facebook or eMail to discuss your own situation.


Chris runs two classes in the Arts Hub (the old Marks & Spencer building) in the centre of Keighley. The classes run on Monday evening and on Wednesday afternoon. There is easy access from the Bus station and the Church Green car park is free to use on an evening.


Chris had a class running at the Rehearsal Room at the rear of the Burnley Mechanics Theatre, but this venue is not available due to use for Covid related things. So, at the moment, the class is in the Central Methodist Church just across the road from the Theatre. This class meets on a Tuesday evening and the car park behind the Theatre is free at that time.

Sowerby Bridge.

Chris’s class in Calderdale is at the Yogamill, Warehouse No 2, Sowerby Bridge. The class meets on a Thursday evening in this historic location next to the canal.

For more details - including start and finish times for all classes - go to the ‘North Wind Tribal’ Facebook page, or contact Chris by the email or phone number shown below.

COVID: At the moment the classes are working in a socially distanced manner and students should wear a mask on their way into, and out of, the venue.
