Welcome to the worldwide dance phenomenon called American Tribal Style®  (ATS®) with its unique look including flowing skirts, finger cymbals, and layers of jewelry! It may look old, but it is actually new. This innovative dance form was created in San Francisco, California by Carolena Nericcio-Bohlman, director of Fat Chance Belly Dance®. It was the first of its kind to use the magic of group improvisation to craft a mesmerizing performance. When you learn this format, you can dance with anyone across the globe who speaks this dance language!

ATS® is a well-established worldwide phenomenon over 25 years old. The movement vocabulary has expanded and includes new moves from Fat Chance Belly Dance® and other Sister Studios. Learn the international language of ATS® vocabulary, refine your technique, and learn level 1 and 2A concepts. 

This session, we bring you a special treat: two instructors who are both sister studios! You will have the benefit of different yet complementary teaching styles to help produce a well-rounded class experience.

More information about the moves that may be taught in this session are available here:, Level 1 and 2a will cover the material designated as Level 1, 1+ and 2 in the above link.

If you are planning to perform, you will need a choli, a 10-25yd skirt, pantaloons, finger cymbals 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.
