ATS & Tribal Fusion


For bookings and payments please contact please follow this link, Marrickville ATS Bellydance

Our classes are now run independently by our teachers, so we would prefer you pay for classes directly with the teachers. You can do this on the day at your first class, or contact Liz or Pip directly to discuss.

6.30pm-7.30pm Fundamentals ATS (American Tribal Style) with Elizabeth Fraser

7.30-8pm ATS DRILL with Pip Simpson

8-9pm Tribal Fusion with Pip Simpson



ATS (American Tribal Style) Beginners 6.30pm

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:

ATS Technique and Drills (30 minutes) 7.30 pm

This course cannot be taken on its own.   It is an optional (but recommended) extra for students in the 6.30pm class, and a compulsory warm-up for the 8pm Tribal Fusion class (except in special cases!).

Tribal Fusion 8pm

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.
