Created in the early 90's by Carolena Nericcio, director of FatChanceBellyDance® in San Francisco, California. American Tribal Style® belly dance is made of a vocabulary of movements and cues which allow for a fluid improvisational performance.
In this on-going 6-week class series, you’ll learn the basic system of American Tribal Style® Belly Dance in a fun and supportive environment.
Learn the basic movements of ATS® with minimal verbal instruction and lots of following along, committing the steps to muscle memory with fun workout-style drills.
Experience the magic of ATS® and learn how to use the basic steps to dance with partners in duet, trio and quartet formations.
