Creating Troupe Guidelines

Anticipating and Addressing Common Issues

Prevention is so much easier than dealing with constant conflict. With a comprehensive set of troupe guidelines, many of the issues that disrupt dance troupes can be anticipated and addressed before they occur. When expectations are clear (including what will happen if someone isn't following the agreed upon troupe guidelines), it makes the inevitable conflict that occurs within any group of people so much easier to handle.

Lisa Allred
Lisa Allred

Lisa Allred was introduced to bellydancing in 2004 by her twin sister, Terri. Soon thereafter she started attending classes with Dawn Ruckert and fell in love with ATS®. The group format, challenging improvisation, shared leadership and beauty resonated with her in a profound way. The universal language of ATS has allowed her to dance with others from around the world and to make so many new friends. She serves as the Assistant Director of Dayanisma and also dances professionally with Terri in Third Eye Tribal. She is also the Director of the student troupe, Sunanda Tribe which is based at World in Motion Dance in Morrisville, NC.

In addition to teaching at the BDBA and partnering with Terri in Third Eye Consulting, Lisa is also a licensed clinical social worker with over 25 years experience working with children, families, communities and nonprofits. As a clinician she specialized in helping victims of child sexual abuse, intimate partner violence (domestic violence), and sexual assault. She has advocated for survivors by leading coalitions that changed NC laws (marital rape and stalking), running nonprofits dedicated to these issues and serving as an expert witness for the courts. She is employed full-time for a large company in their Work/Life department and assists employees with personal issues related to parenting, relationships and achieving work/life balance. She serves on the Ethics Committee for the NC Chapter of the National Association of Social Workers and is an adjunct instructor at NC State University in the Graduate School of Social Work.
