ATS® Workshops with Wendy and Sandi in Rome (Rome, Italy)

October 13-14, 2018

Hello ATS® dancers! This is going to be a two-days Advanced Workshop led in tandem by FatChanceBellyDance®’s Instructor Emerita Wendy Allen and Instructor Emerita Sandi Ball, two of the very brightest stars in the ATS® Universe. In order to make this experience more affordable and concentrate the fun in a more compact module, this year we will skip the two hours of Fundamentals. This means that, even if this workshop is technically an open level, you are assumed to be well versed already in all the basics of the American Tribal Style®. All instruction will be given in English. Please note that no translation will be provided in order to maximize time.

This principle can be applied to many ATS® movements through the concepts of anchor and release. In this workshop, we’ll look at the mechanics of how certain moves are anchored and how releasing interacts with anchor points to create dynamic balance.
  • 4:30-6:30 PM: The Tessera Sampler Platter – To end nicely this week end, let’s have a taste of Tessera Tribal®’s ATS® Movement Dialect, as Tessera Tribal® is known for their innovative, formation-driven approach to ATS®.

Dimanche 21 octobre 2018
