ATS® Master Classes
Belly dance is based on muscular isolation and control. That being said, how many of us truly understand and can identify the muscles we are working? Janine Turner specializes in the anatomy and the muscular isolations that generate our ATS® dance moves. This knowledge and understanding will provide the dancer with increased articulation and technical refinement of their beautiful FCBD®movement vocabulary for exquisite execution of the dance. If you ever wanted to delve deeper into the technical art of this dance, these seminars are for you! Watch for upcoming seminars in Richmond, VA, then come and indulge! Janine Turner is also available to present these seminars for both teachers and students nationally and internationally in your own community. Learn how to be a more effective teacher and dancer with this knowledge and training. For more information, contact Janine Turner at: email@example.com
Fall 2019 Class Schedule
Fat Chance Belly Dance® at Dogtown Dance Theatre!
Free community classes are being run at Dogtown Dance Theatre by Ajna Tribal instructor, Missy Moore. 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 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 exciting ways. Whether you have never danced before or are a seasoned dancer, come and enjoy this delightful style of dance! Classes are offered on Sunday’s from 5:30-6:30 starting Oct 6, 2020 and running through Dec. 15th 2020. If you would like more information, contact the instructor at: firstname.lastname@example.org Donations are welcome.
