The art and culture of India has been very influential to American Tribal Style (ATS®) and bellydance in general. Join TriDevi Tribal as we explore Indian- influenced ATS® moves and combinations created by Devyani
Dance Company! In this session, we will focus on fast ATS® moves inspired by Rajasthani Folk Dance, as well as some of Devyani’s fun combos from Fat Chance Belly Dance’s® Tribal Basics DVDs Volumes 7 and 9.
Also, for the first time at Bedouin Beats, TriDevi Tribal will lead you through an exploration of Devyani’s Indian Temple Dance poses- influenced by temple carvings and paintings. We will learn to flow through these beautiful postures with Devyani’s “Extended Puja” choreography, which we will include in our performance at the Bedouin Beats winter recital.
You can also incorporate the extended puja as a personal moving meditation, a warm up and/or cool down.
Prerequisite: As this is an advanced ATS® class, students should have a solid knowledge and execution of ATS® foundational vocabulary and formations. All ATS® classes are taught by members of Edmonton’s own ATS® troupe, TriDevi Tribal, who hold certification as ATS® teachers from FatChanceBellyDance®.
Note: there is no class on January 23, as your instructors will be in training.
If you are planning to perform, you will need a choli, a 10-25yd skirt, pantaloons, and a tribal belt or hip shawl which are available in our store. Please wear comfortable clothing to class and either bare feet or soft dance shoes.
Student recital info: We celebrate the end of each 10 week session with a fun dance recital! There will be a performance piece 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!
