What is ATS®
American Tribal Style® belly dance is a modern style of dance created by FatChanceBellyDance® director, Carolena Nericcio. Although ATS® may appear to be the most authentic form of belly dance it is actually a contemporary fusion style with movements inspired by folkloric dances of the Middle East, India, North Africa and Spain. ATS® is an improvisational group dance, each movement has its own cue which dancers use to indicate to each other when a change in move or formation is about to happen allowing the dancers to communicate through dance and create spontaneous, improvisational choreography. ATS® is earthy and artistic with the posture being open and uplifted, with strong yet elegant arms. This system of cues, formations and distinct movement vocabulary allows ATS® dancers across the globe to come together and dance without the need to rehearse.
