Fall 2018 Class Schedule

American Tribal Style® Belly Dance (Level 1a)

Come join a unique type of folkloric belly dance in which you learn the “vocabulary” (moves) of the dance and the non-verbal “cues” alerting you to which moves are coming next, then just “follow the leader” as the entire dance group appears to move together in synchronicity. This type of dance, called “American Tribal Style® (ATS®) belly dance, is a “melting pot” that joins together traditional dance moves from various countries such as India, Spain, Persia, North Africa and the Middle East in new and unique ways. ATS® is a community dance that is low impact yet gets your body moving in a fun and enjoyable manner. Whether you have never danced before or are a seasoned dancer, come and enjoy American Tribal Style® (ATS®) belly dance!
