What started as a simple belly dance class in San Francisco in the late 1980s has flourished into the phenomenon known as American Tribal Style® Belly Dance, or ATS®. An elegant system for group improvisation using specific steps, combinations, formations, and transitions, ATS® is the global language shared by enthusiastic followers of Carolena Nericcio’s FatChanceBellyDance (FCBD) troupe. ATS® is a living, breathing, vibrant conversation in improvisational movement. What’s more, once you learn the core elements, you can join in the dance, wherever you go.
Whether you are a novice, experienced student, or teacher, this companion guide was created to help build and refresh your knowledge of ATS®. It offers full-color photos of professional dancers, written instructions, and visual body maps, as well as action and visualization segments.
Designed to be used in concert with the expansive FCBD® video collection, it’s a quick and easy-to-use reference for ATS® dancers of all levels.
This beautiful, full color book provides detailed instruction on the basic slow and fast movements in the ATS® Classic vocabulary. This book is perfect for the long time dancer, or the student just beginning. Be the first to give or receive this “must have” resource for your FatChanceBellyDance® library.
