American Tribal Style Belly Dance
At Sacred Movement, we offer a variety of American Tribal Style® (ATS®) belly dance classes and workshops for beginning dancers and seasoned performers alike. No previous dance experience is necessary. Our fun classes celebrate the female form in all of its beautiful shapes, sizes, ages (16+) and abilities. We strive to inspire positive personal image and promote self discovery in a welcoming and supportive community of women.
American Tribal Style® belly dance has a unique vocabulary of elegant movements, steps and cues, danced in duet, trio or quartet formations. This beautiful dance form teaches you to tune into the voice of your feminine body and communicate with other women through the ancient art of belly dance. In Sacred Movement’s ATS® classes, you will take turns “talking and listening” to create a visual conversation that is as powerful to watch as it is to create.
American Tribal Style® (ATS®) Belly Dance is a colorful blend of traditional Middle Eastern, Flamenco and classical Indian dance, created by Carolena Nericcio-Bohlman, Director of FatChance BellyDance in San Francisco, California. This unique form of belly dance is known for its playful improvisational style and beautiful tribal costumes and jewelry.
