ATS® Flow
Sunday, November 5 ~ 4:00 – 5:00 pm
Sunday, December 3 ~ 4:00 -5:00 pm

Lisa leading pujaATS® Flow is about freeing your mind and “going with the flow”. There will be no verbal instruction nor correction, no partners, no formations, no mirrors, no talking by participants, and no judgments – just dance. Lisa will lead this hour-long class which features continuous music with breaks given every 15 minutes or so for dancers to hydrate and stretch. Both slow and fast American Tribal Style® vocabulary will be included; all you need to do is let go and follow along. This is an all levels class, but familiarity with at least some ATS® structure and movement is ideal.


ATS® Flow will  now be held on the first Sunday of the month starting November 5 based on a minimum of 4 preregistered students. Drop-ins welcome as space permits.  Maximum enrollment: 15 students. 

Fee: $15

More information and registration available on our ATS® Flow page.
