Cues & Tattoos is thrilled to host our fifth intensive with the originator of American Tribal Style®, Carolena Nericcio-Bohlman.

The two day intensive will feature 7 hours of instruction. This intensive is sold as a package only, please plan to attend both days.

 

Craft an ATS® Set and Perform it at Cues and Tattoos!-Wednesday & Thursday March 29 & 30 – 10:30am-2:00pm

Limited to 20 students

 

The fine art of crafting a performance. Students will be challenged with a set of music and performance situations based on real life (a small party, a big outdoor festival, etc.) We will form small groups, discuss and drill through the songs in the set, choose who is dancing to which song, rehearse again, critique the progress and then present our show at the Instructor Showcase at Cues and Tattoos!

(Please note that students who want to watch the entire Theater Showcase will need to purchase a ticket)

Get ready for a full ATS® headdress, Carolena will create a custom wrap to suit you. A list of simple costume requirements will be sent when you register.

Dancers must know (I mean, really be able to do it!) the basics of Taxeem, Bodywave, Hand Floreo and Arm Undulations, Shimmy, Arabic Basic, Egyptian Basic, Pivot Bumps and Choo-choos. Also, be able to use ATS® formations: Duet, Trio and Quartet. Please review the FCBD® dvds Vol. 1-7 if necessary. Your success in this class relies on your ability to communicate (non-verbally!) with the other dancers.

 

2017 Cues and Tattoos Workshops

 

Touch The Music- Friday March 31 – 3:00pm-5:00pm

 

What is your favorite song? What is it that makes it special? What did you feel when you first heard it, and can you express that feeling when you dance to it? In this workshop, Carolena presents a series of drills to help find the suitable combinations and exact formations to match your favorite music. Learn how to let the music push you, giving the freedom to simply respond, particularly when you know the steps and formations, and trust your partners and audience.
Please be versed in the basics: Taxeem, Bodywave, Hand Floreos and Arm Undulations, Shimmy, basic Arabic, basic Eygptian, Pivot Bump and Choochoo.
Bring: zils, a full skirt is recommended but not mandatory.

 

Zils-Yin and Yang-Sunday April 2nd –  3:00pm-5:00pm

 

Yes, you can play zils and dance at the same time! Learn how to hold your zils so you can play fast, what to do with your zils during a slow song, which zils are right for you, how to get a consistent sound, and a few other tricks. We’ll look at five Tribal Zil patterns (Basic RLR, Alternating RL, Military, Moroccan Six, Baladi) and apply them to your dance.
*Recommended but not mandatory: Dancers should know the basics of Taxeem, Arm Undulation, Bodywave, Hand Floreos, Shimmy, Arabic Basic,Egyptian Basic, Pivot Bumps and Choo-choos. Dancers without knowledge of the basic steps can drill finger cymbal patterns during the dance segment.

What is your favorite song? What is it that makes it special? What did you feel when you first heard it, and can you express that feeling when you dance to it? In this workshop, Carolena presents a series of drills to help find the suitable combinations and exact formations to match your favorite music. Learn how to let the music push you, giving the freedom to simply respond, particularly when you know the steps and formations, and trust your partners and audience.
Please be versed in the basics: Taxeem, Bodywave, Hand Floreos and Arm Undulations, Shimmy, basic Arabic, basic Eygptian, Pivot Bump and Choochoo.
Bring: zils, a full skirt is recommended but not mandatory.

 

Zils-Yin and Yang-Sunday April 2nd –  3:00pm-5:00pm

 

Yes, you can play zils and dance at the same time! Learn how to hold your zils so you can play fast, what to do with your zils during a slow song, which zils are right for you, how to get a consistent sound, and a few other tricks. We’ll look at five Tribal Zil patterns (Basic RLR, Alternating RL, Military, Moroccan Six, Baladi) and apply them to your dance.
*Recommended but not mandatory: Dancers should know the basics of Taxeem, Arm Undulation, Bodywave, Hand Floreos, Shimmy, Arabic Basic,Egyptian Basic, Pivot Bumps and Choo-choos. Dancers without knowledge of the basic steps can drill finger cymbal patterns during the dance segment.
