Abby Moon is an international tribal fusion bellydancer currently living in Denver, CO. In 2000 she grew her roots in American Tribal Style Bellydance while studying with Portland’s Gypsy Caravan, then moved to NYC in 2004 where she helped establish the emerging tribal bellydance scene there. In New York Abby danced with Alchemy Tribal Collective, P.U.R.E. (Public Urban Ritual Experiment), Solstice Dance Company, and LUNARIS, performing at festivals and venues across the country with those troupes for 11 years. After moving to Colorado in 2015, Abby started Crescent Dance Project, and teaches a weekly tribal fusion bellydance class in Denver. Always presenting original material, Crescent Dance Project strives to offer a unique flavor of tribal fusion dance that delves into the realms of prayerformance and sacred ritual dance. CDP’s unique style of tribal fusion bellydance is inspired by ritual and sacred dance expression grounded in tribal electronic music, and their choreographies showcase symbolic movement reflecting their interest in astrology, deity archetypes, and sacred geometry. As a soloist and as a company, Abby Moon and Crescent Dance Project have performed at many large venues in Colorado as well as festivals around the world.
