(Beginning, Level 1 through Advanced, Level 4):
Do you love American Tribal Style® (ATS®) belly dance? Do you want to refine your movement? Improve your technique? Do you know which movements belong to which vocabulary family and how to use them? Or do you want to start to learn the joy of ATS and delve deeper? Then this is the intensive for you! In this technique intensive series, you’ll learn ATS® vocabulary (not limited to levels 1 or 2) in relation to both slow and fast ATS movements. Open to all dancers and skill levels, from beginner to seasoned performers!Twice each month, we’ll go over proper technique for the featured core movements to build a stronger foundation in a 2-hour block class. Then you’ll learn to use the core movement in continuing ways moving through ATS steps from level 2 and beyond! We’ll use drills and ATS formations to explore the relationship between steps in each of the movement families. We’ll explore formations and moving in and out of chorus, class sizes permitting. Come dance and delve deeper into your love of ATS!
