ATS® Combos for Improv and Choreo Workshop with Lisa

ATS® Combos for Improv and Choreo Workshop with Lisa

ATS® is a strictly improv form of dance; however, when some steps are combined in the same order, they create a particularly beautiful mix of shapes and flow of energy. In this workshop Lisa will teach short combos that will make your slow more compelling and your fast more exciting. These combos are created by putting ATS® moves together in ways that are strategic and sometimes difficult.

This workshop is ideal for ATS® dancers who want to level up their performance. However, dancers who are not familiar with ATS® but pick up steps quickly could integrate these combos into choreography or use them for improv in different types of belly dance.

Minimum of 5 preregistered

Fee: $40 by Oct. 16; $45 after

Crafting a Dynamic Solo, Part Deux! with Sonya

There was so much material we didn't get to in Sonya’s first workshop, so we decided to offer a part two!  This time we'll work on breaking down music to know when to change up your moves, work on spins and turns, travelling moves, and stage patterns.  If we have time, we'll do a couple of layering combos to get your neurons firing.   You do not have to have been to part one to come to this, it's different but related material. All levels welcome, there should be a little something for everybody. 

Fee: $30 by May 27; $35 after

Enhancing Your ATS® Skills with Dawn

During this workshop, we will review the basic moves and concepts that students should have familiarity with to enhance their experience in ATS® classes beyond Fundamentals of Tribal Belly Dance. 

This workshop is open to students who have had at least 4 sessions of Fundamentals of Tribal Belly Dance or by instructor permission. Students currently enrolled in Intermediate and Advanced ATS®/Tribal Belly Dance are also welcome (and encouraged!) to attend.

The workshop will emphasize:

  • Intensive practice of lead/follow and leader transitions

  • Zilling during the duration of the intensive

  • Reinforcement of proper tribal posture and formations

Heavy review of Level 1+ moves and an introduction to/review of some Intermediate level moves that are integral to success in higher level ATS® classes

Bring zils and water, and wear something akin to yoga pants so that we can observe your posture and alignment more easily. (No skirts/pantaloons or overly baggy shirts, please!)

We hope that you are willing to work hard, feel better prepared for a more advanced ATS® experience, and have fun all at once!

Fee:  $25 by March 27; $30 after

Crafting a Dynamic Solo with Sonya

Have you been wishing to solo, but don't know where to start? Been soloing for a while, but feel stuck in a rut?  This workshop can help you find your own authentic dance voice, or help refine your existing skills. We'll focus on how to vary your movement to convey different images and emotions, staging, and nuances of performance. All levels welcome, there's a little something for everyone. 

Sonya has been dancing all her life, but found her love of bellydance in 1997, with the incomparable Z-Helene in Austin, TX.  After years of study with her, she became the assistant teacher at Austin Community College until she moved to Durham, NC, to escape the brutal summers.  She has also taken workshops with many notable instructors to expand her style, including Elena Lentini, Mahmoud Reda, Artemis, Zoe Jakes, and Mardi Love.  She now produces a show once a month at a Durham bottle shop, and welcomes all to come share the love of the dance.

Fee: $30 until Feb. 25/ $35 after
