Welcome to the worldwide dance phenomenon called American Tribal Style® (ATS®) with its unique look including flowing skirts, finger cymbals, hair gardens, and layers of jewelry! This innovative dance form was created in the San Francisco Bay Area by Carolena Nericcio, director of FatChanceBellyDance® (FCBD®). It was the first of its kind to use the magic of group improvisation to craft a mesmerizing performance. The lead dancer provides visual cues to the followers to let them know which move to do next, resulting in dances/performances that appear to be choreographed but are actually improvised on the spot. When you learn this format, you can instantly dance with anyone across the globe who speaks this dance language!
Through this combined level class, participants will learn the foundational moves and vocabulary of ATS®, and then build upon those foundations with flourishes and combinations that create dynamic improvised performances.
All ATS® classes are taught by members of Edmonton’s own ATS® Troupe, TriDevi Tribal, who hold certification as ATS® teachers from FCBD®
Come join the fun!
This class is a level 1-2 split class. We’ve designed a program that will include dancers of each level.
Student recital info: We celebrate the end of each 10 week session with a fun dance recital! There will be a choreography taught in this class and the opportunity to perform in our amazing end of term show! If you choose to participate, you will need a performer ticket as well as a costume to wear for the performance. Many costuming options will be made available. If you choose not to perform then we hope you come and watch and cheer your class on!
