The class descriptions below refer to the classes which will run term 2, 3 & 4, 2018
ATS (American Tribal Style) Beginners 6pm
It’s more accurate to call this a ”fundamentals” class, as it’s not unusual for intermediate students to attend this class, to maintain their technique. Even if you have learned regular bellydance, it’s always best to start with this Beginners class in ATS (American Tribal Style), as the technique and concepts are different.
Tribal Style (ATS) is a modern belly dance style created in the US. It’s a rich fusion of many folkloric dance styles from all over the world. For faster progress, it’s recommended to take this class in conjunction with the 30 minute technique class which follows it. For more information on the style see: fcbd.com/about/about-ats/
ATS Technique and Drills (30 minutes) 7 pm
This course cannot be taken on its own. It is an optional (but recommended) extra for students in the 6pm class, and a compulsory warm-up for the 7.30pm Tribal Fusion class (except in special cases!).
Tribal Fusion 7.30pm
Tribal Fusion combines ATS moves with other dance forms, often ‘oriental bellydance’. This class teaches and drills isolations, transitions, layers, combinations and choreography, in the Tribal fusion style, with a strong ATS base. For Beyond Beginners and up.
