American Tribal Style® Dancing in Flow™ (ATS)
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
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.
