Fort of the Stranger is the translation of the Irish place-name Dún na nGall, Anglicised as Donegal.

It is a place of wild beauty, and home to a fiercely independent people.

Sadly, we are located in the northern reaches of Chicago, rather than the north-west of Ireland; we are, however, the home of Mother-Daughter Tribal, offering Level One classes for Fat Chance Style Belly Dance,(FCBD®) formerly known as  American Tribal Style(ATS®) Belly Dance, which is cause for great joy.

Please visit our Classes and Events page for full details.

We also make clothing suitable for Tribal Style dancers, examples of which may be viewed on our Products page.
Original photographs, taken in Ireland, are available, as well. These are framed and double-matted, using archival-quality, acid-free mat board and frames chosen to subtly enhance each image.
Please contact us for specific descriptions and prices.

-Many Thanks!

"ATS®","American Tribal Style®"and "Fat Chance Belly Dance®"are registered to Carolena Nericcio.
