American Tribal Style® Level 3 Fall 2018
AMERICAN TRIBAL STYLE® LEVEL 3 FINESSE WITH TRIDEVI TRIBAL (KIM AND KAREN) THURSDAYS 7:45PM-9:15PM
Starts: Thursday, September 20, 2018
Duration: 10 weeks
ATS® celebrates the strength and beauty of dancers working together as a group. Formatted steps, cues, eye-contact and the familiarity of musical phrasing allow dancers to stitch together an improvisational tapestry each time they dance. American Tribal Style® is based on group improvisation rather than choreography. The ATS® system uses a standardized “vocabulary” of dance movements with built in cues and transitions that make it possible for dancers to improvise together in set formations.
This session, ATS classes are split into ATS Level ½ and ATS Level 3.
Should my gaze be here…or here? Is that a reverse floreo or a half floreo? Oh no – spins! ATS® is a nuanced, layered art form. When you learn the steps for the first time, sometimes the subtleties can escape you. Join Karen and Kim this session to polish your posture, clean up your cues, and get that Arabic shimmy on lock. As an added bonus, the class will work together to create two original dialect moves. Throughout the session, we will also give personal feedback and guidance as we focus on technique, musicality, and formations.
Pre-requisite for this class is a strong understanding of levels one and two ATS® vocabulary. We encourage every student to take level one and two before starting level 3 to ensure you have a solid foundation and movement knowledge. If you’re unsure about the moves in each level, please ask your instructors, or read more here.
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 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!
