Intro to ATS®  Workshop
Saturday, November 4 ~ 1:30 – 3:00 pm

Lisa for stage presence lab seriesHave you ever been ATS® curious? American Tribal Style ® dance is a language that transcends cultures and countries. Just like a verbal language there are words (or steps) that have punctuation (or cues.) Dancers take turns talking (or leading) and the result is a seamless conversation (or dance performance) that happens without words.

This workshop is perfect for experienced dancers who want to try ATS®, new dancers who are intimidated by the lead/follow format and aren’t ready to commit to an entire class session, or anyone else who wants to come learn the foundation of ATS®. We will cover the origins of ATS®, the lead/follow format, and the basic ATS ® dance formations including chorus. You will learn a few chorus moves and the 4 basic moves at the heart of the ATS ® vocabulary.

$30 by October 30; $35 after

A minimum of 5 preregistered students is required to run this workshop. Maximum enrollment is 12.
