Violet Scrap is a well known international performer, teacher and choreographer in the Tribal Fusion scene, located in Italy. After an early life spent studying music and visual arts, she began her journey with bellydance at the age of 18, finally feeding a lifelong desire. She started studying with Syria Nejma, a local dance teacher, approaching the folk styles of Baladi, Saiidi, Ghawazee and Khaleeji in 2007. In 2008 she started dancing with the world music group Groowa Circus with the fellow dancer Irene Copolutti. Hours of improvised performances every night will be one of the strongest sides of her formation as a dancer and performer. In a natural leap onto exploration, she found out about Tribal Fusion Bellydance in 2008. After a few years of self-teaching, she started travelling to train officially, picking very selectively only the best professionals around: Rachel Brice, Mardi Love, Samantha Emanuel, Cera Byer. Ashley Lopez, Ariellah Aflalo, Kami Liddle, Heather Stants, Colleena Shakti are just a handful of names under which she trained. In 2011 she started collaborating with another very well-known italian dancer, Lamia Barbara, with whom she gave birth to the VIO.LA project, a dancing duo that aims at pushing boundaries and create beauty. The same year she started training ATS, and started teaching weekly Tribal Fusion classes in Perugia and Foligno. In September 2011 she began her travellings abroad to perform at Shows and Haflas. Pushed by the love for the art form and the incredibly supporting worldwide feedback, 2012 is the year of her turning to a fulltime dancer. Keeping up with her bellydance formation, she jumped from Yoga to Bharatanatyam, from House dance to Theatre, and started working with the crew from the Street Dance School in Perugia. She started studying popping and hip hop and collaborating with the dancer Alessandro Fava, and had the chance to dance for the musicians Filastine and Nova. In 2014 she organized The Urban Fusion festival in Perugia, a bellydance/hip hop themed festival. The same year she co-organized Cabaret Voltaire with Alice Sodi in Tuscany, an experimental Festival with the first Tribal Fusion show streaming online worldwide, that had its second edition in 2015. To this date, she has taught and performed non-stop to many festivals and events, in Italy and abroad, trying to bring her peculiar vision of the possibility of dance all the way to the United States, Japan, China, Australia, India, Mexico, Argentina, Russia, Portugal, Brazil, France, England, Ukraine, Israel, Germany, Spain, Greece, Hungary, Croatia, Poland, Bosnia-Erzegovina, Estonia, Lithuania, Finland and Austria, now planning to step her feet further across all oceans, in search for more dance and more learning.
