American Tribal Style- Level I - Monday 7pm
Elizabeth "Amani Maharet" Irwin
In this class you will learn the basics of FatChanceBellyDance® style ATS®, or American Tribal Style® bellydance, the synchronized group improvisation that started it all. Based on the idea of creating a universal dance vocabulary, so dancers around the world could dance together despite language barriers, Carolena Nerriccio of San Francisco, CA created a system of steps and coordinating cues. Through these cues a dancer who is designated as the leader can communicate to the rest of the group, the followers and the chorus, to create a spur-of-the-moment one-of-a-kind dance. This class will not only help you build self-confidence but strengthen the bond between dancers & sisters, open to all levels.
