American Tribal Style® Belly Dance

American Tribal Style® Belly Dance (ATS®) is a modern style of dance created by FatChanceBellyDance® director, Carolena Nericcio. ATS® is unique in that it is a group dance with an established dance “vocabulary,” which means that any ATS® dancer anywhere in the world can dance with another.

Level I – Mondays, 7:30-8:30 PM with Terri

For the brand new student or the experienced dancer who wants to revisit the fundamentals.

In this 6-week course, learn the basic dance vocabulary for this beautiful, collaborative, improvisational dance form. Using both slow movements and fast steps we’ll get you dancing in your first class. We’ll learn all basic movements and group formations including posture and body awareness, zils, and music. Finger Cymbals (zils) are required for week 3.

Level 2 – Mondays, 8:30-9:30PM with Terri

This class is the next step after fundamentals. To take this class you must have completed Level I and understand partner and group dancing.

In this 12-week course, we’ll refine individual technique by drilling the basics and their variations creatively. We will also build on our ATS® slow and fast movement vocabulary.
