Level 1 American Tribal Style® (ATS®)

Saturdays at 11:15am with Jennie - New Session Starts August 24th!


This is an improvisational style of dance in a lead-and-follow format using a set of movements rooted in belly dance, flamenco, and classical Indian dance. ATS® is low impact, yet improves strength, stamina, and coordination. ATS® shines through connection and communication; bringing people together from around the world with only the dance in common.

Using the FCBD® standardized class format, this 75-minute class runs in a 6-week session introducing the dance posture and safety, finger cymbal use, formations, basic fast and slow moves. Classes also include warm-up and cool-down exercises.

Level 1 ATS® is designed to be repeated several times and additional vocabulary will be added according to FCBD format as participants progress.

Is this the right class for me?

Intro to Belly Dance is excellent preparation for further study in any style of belly dance. Everyone is welcome, regardless of dance background or lack thereof.
