ATS® Dancing in Flow™
Dancing in Flow™ was created by FatChanceBellyDance founder Carolena Nericcio-Bohlman with the class format of “all dance, no talk.”
Perfect for L1 and L2 students who have attended classes and just need ”empty brain time” to dance and get the steps into muscle memory. And L3 students who want to dance without thinking to help eliminate “overthink” when you take the leadership position. No verbal instruction, no partners or formations, just follow along and bliss out.
Dancing in Flow ™ is a one hour class divided into 4 fifteen minute segments with a quiet water break every 15 min. During the first fifteen minutes of class, the brain will chatter as the students become used to dancing continuously. During the second fifteen minutes, the brain will begin to relax. During the third period of dance, the brain will finally decide to take a vacation to allow the body to enjoy moving. Finally, during the last fifteen minutes, you will go on auto-pilot into pure bliss
ATS for Teens- Students will learn basic posture, isolations, and arm positions that will allow the student to learn safely and build a base for the vocabulary of American Tribal Style Bellydance. ATS is a group improvisational form of dance that utilizes a lead/follow format. It builds trust and teamwork and emphasizes the group rather than the individual. The class will incorporate finger cymbals. Hip scarves can be provided and are also available for purchase.
ATS Level 1 Class- Students will learn a style of bellydance known as American Tribal Style.
American Tribal Style® Bellydance (ATS®) is a modern style of dance created by FatChanceBellyDance® director, Carolena Nericcio. Its movements are inspired by folkloric dances of the Middle East, North Africa, Spain and India. ATS® is a method of improvisational choreography, using a vocabulary of movements and cues allowing the dancers to communicate while dancing. Knowledge of the dance vocabulary allows ATS dancers from different regions to collaborate even if they have not previously danced with each other. The feeling is ancient and connected, with its vibrant costuming, music, use of zils (finger cymbals), movements and interaction between the tribe of dancers.
Beginner Bellydance Class- Students will learn a style of belly dance known as Fusion bellydance.
Tribal Fusion Belly Dance is a modern form of belly dance which was created by fusing American Tribal Style® belly dance and American Cabaret belly dance. Artists frequently incorporate elements from Popping, Hip Hop, 'Egyptian' or 'Cabaret' belly dance, as well as movement principles from traditional forms such as Flamenco, Kathak, Odissi, and other folkloric and classical dance styles.
American Cabaret Bellydance
American Cabaret Bellydance is a modern style of dance performed in the US that pulls from various styles of Middle Eastern dance, though it is primarily from Egyptian Raqs Sharki (Eastern or Oriental dance). When people hear “bellydance”, this is the style they usually think of. Costumes for performers generally include lots of sequins and performers dance to Egyptian music or music from that region.
