Deb's foundation of Tribal was rooted through study with her first teacher, Jill Parker, and 4+years in UltraGypsy Belly Dance Theater under the direction of Jill Parker. Her technique and stylization is most influenced by inspiration from her long-time teacher, Rachel Brice, whom she had the honor to assist at Tribal Massive, 2008, and has much gratitude for her guidance on this path, both in and out of the studio. A product of the SF dance community, during the boom and global expansion of tribal fusion, Deb is honored to have studied intensively, over a 10 year time span, with many of the masters and innovators of this genre.

"Deb Rubin, you are an amazing teacher and your material is something that I've been looking for as a dancer for a while. Not only do I feel that I can get deeper into my body for dance, but I can feel the difference in my Yoga as well. Thank you so much, Deb! "
Jade Gibson, Tribal Fusion Belly Dancer, Yoga Teacher. Houston, TX.
"Training with Deb Rubin has profoundly nourished my body conditioning: the essence behind the slink factor...technique, locks, glitching, AWEsome combos- one of the best teachers & extensively trained devoted dancers out there."
Giselle, Tribal Fusion Belly Dancer, Australia.
"We are too used to throwing around words like "brilliant" and "outstanding" so that it becomes way too difficult to figure out was the subject really that brilliant and outstanding or it is just more about being politically correct. But not so when you invite tribal bellydance star Deb Rubin to be a part of your event. Deb has the whole package - she is literally a brilliant teacher - very precise in her explanations whether it is about muscle control or putting emotional power into the movement, very into detail about any aspect of the dance and very student-oriented. At the same time, she's an outstanding performer, who casts a spell on the audience both with her elegant slinky signature dancing as well as her jaw-dropping dubstep interpretations combined with gorgeous onstage persona. Those who visited Deb workshops and saw her perform at MIZZZMAR FEST 2013 in St. Petersburg, Russia were unison in their opinions: "This woman is magical". So, to all the dancers who aspire to grow, who are not scared of working hard and being challenged - don't miss her classes, she is a true jewel of our dance style. "
Katia Sirruf, Belly Dancer/Teacher, St. Petersburg, Russia.
