Daka
Bijou
Nokomis
Daka, also known as Mark in his everyday life, has a fascination with culture, language, spirituality, and folklore. Always driven by an inherent desire to wonder, and seeking a method of uniting the body and mind. With his passion for music, dance, theater, and costume, he discovered ATS and fulfilled this wish. He has experience in fire fan choreography, ATS with tambourine, as well as tribal drumming and musicality. He developed such a passion for tribal drumming that he founded a new DFW drum group, the Temple of Doum. He also takes great joy in inviting other men to join the ATS siblinghood, representing an art form that empowers both men and women to embrace their higher selves and to have confidence in all they do.
Nokomis has been dancing ATS for the better part of a decade, and her love of Tribal style has never stopped growing. She has found a community brimming with love, acceptance, body positivity and creative expression that feeds her soul. She is excited to expand her vocabulary of movement with Tribal Evolution, and add to her family of tribal sisters and brothers.
In her everyday life, she is a multifaceted creative professional, specializing in photo/film/digital arts and floral design. Her hobbies include playing the bass and guitar, singing, writing, reading, and whatever new craft she's into at the moment.
Bijou began dancing with Tribal Evolution in 2020. She has been dancing FCBD style belly dance since 2012 and instructed for Opus Arts Collaborative and Four Moons Tribal for 5 years prior to joining TE. She has wanted to be a belly dancer since she was 12 years old and enjoys not only the dance but the siblinghood that comes along with it.
You might notice some similarities between Bijou and Nocomis, that's because they are identical twins! They have also been dancing/instructing together along with Daka since the beginning of their dancing careers.
