You’ll learn both slow and fast vocabulary to add musicality and variety to your group improvisation. Basic knowledge of ATS® vocabulary and formations recommended but not required.
4-6: “Formations, Configurations and Patterns” – conducted by Colette
Introducing Scarlet Thistle’s latest formation fun! These exciting and challenging arrangements incorporate multiple fades, circling changes, and bring everyone into the lead. Working with duets, trios, and quartets, these formations are suitable for fast and slow movements, allow the dancers to choose how quickly to switch things up, and cover the stage with beautiful patterns.

10 AM-12 PM: “Zil to Thrill: Composition & Choreography” – conducted by Colette
Zil training is a compulsory part of every ATS® dancer’s training. The various patterns, sounds, and ways to accompany the dancers are a distinctive part of ATS® performances. Push the limits of your zil playing with this exciting composition, that uses a wide range of patterns and sounds, and pairs with a choreography of ATS® moves. Use this composition to advance your zil skills, for practice and drilling, or as inspiration to develop your own choreography.

All dance – No talk! Dancing in Flow® is a one hour class divided into 4 fifteen minute segments with a quiet water break every 15 min. This contemplative concept means: No verbal instruction, no formations, no worries! Your brain will finally decide to take a vacation to allow the body to enjoy moving. Bring zils and water. “Flow® is dancing in the divine subconscious” (Carolena Nericcio-Bohlman)

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.

If you are interested in this precious opportunity of studying with Wendy Allen and Sandi Ball don’t wait too long to book if you don’t wish to end up on the waiting list and likely be left out of the event.

Please note that, while being an Open Level, this workshop is NOT for beginners. You must know and have consistently worked on all your basic moves.

You are kindly encouraged to follow this dress code: choli or dance top, a Full Skirt and Pantaloons or hose pants underneath. Please avoid coin belts and any noisy piece of garment. Don’t forget to bring your Zills and a notebook!
