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.

Saturday, 2018 October 20

  • 2-4 PM: Fancy Fades and Swishy Circles – Learn proper technique for fast and exciting fades using ASWAAT, Arabic Hip Twist with Flourish, Turkish Shimmy Quarter Turn, Arabic Double Turn, and Triangle Step. Kick things up a notch by taking some of these movements into beautiful swirling circles.

Sunday, 2018 October 21

  • 2-4 PM: Anchors Away! – Newton’s third law of physics states that for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. 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®. You’ll learn both slow and fast vocabulary to add musicality and variety to your group improvisation.

You need to have minimum the ATS® level 1 & 2 to attend these workshops. To any workshop: Bring your zills and water!

Salle de spectacle du centre Paris Anim Mathis au 15 rue Mathis 75019 Paris

Samedi 20 octobre 2018
* 14 h – 16 h : Ressac et tourbillon – Apprenez la technique appropriée pour des fades rapides et excitants avec des mouvements tels que ASWAAT, Arabic Hip Twist with Flourish, Turkish Shimmy Quarter Turn, Arabic Double Turn, et Triangle Step. Montez d’un cran le niveau d’exécution de certains de ces mouvements dans de beaux cercles tourbillonnants.
* 16 h 30 – 18 h 30 : Le monde pour scène – Cet atelier aux concepts les plus techniques vous montrera les rouages intérieurs de la construction d’une scène complexe qui mélange harmonieusement l’improvisation et la chorégraphie utilisant le blocage, les formations, et les transitions.

Dimanche 21 octobre 2018
* 14 h – 16 h : Ancrage et délestage – La troisième loi physique de Newton indique que pour chaque action il y a une réaction égale et opposée. Ce principe peut être appliqué à de nombreux mouvements ATS® à travers les concepts d’ancrage et de libération. Dans cet atelier, nous allons examiner la mécanique de la façon dont certains mouvements sont ancrés et comment la libération interagit avec les points d’ancrage pour créer un équilibre dynamique.
* 16 h 30 – 18 h 30 : Le plateau d’hors d’oeuvres Tessera – Pour finir en beauté le week end, offrez vous un avant-goût du dialecte de mouvement ATS® de Tessera Tribal®, connue pour son approche innovante et axée sur les formations en ATS®. Vous apprendrez à la fois du vocabulaire lent et rapide pour ajouter de la musicalité et de la variété à votre improvisation de groupe.

Der fliegende Teppich (The Flying Carpet), Nordrhein-Westfalen, Germany, May 10-12, 2019

Der fliegende Teppich (The Flying Carpet), (Nordrhein-Westfalen, Germany)

May 10-12, 2019

What is the Flying Carpet? The dance festival for Bonn, Cologne and the Rhein Sieg Kreis and, of course, all others who have the same passion as us, the Oriental Dance. Where does one get such an idea? The Flying Carpet has existed since 2015, when it was a rather spontaneous and very small idea to drum up more dancers out of a longing. In 2016 the carpet suddenly grew and the space had to be enlarged. When we planned the Flying Carpet in 2017 at the latest, it was clear that we had flown beyond our goal. The idea of a kind of regulars’ table for oriental dancers became a completely different kind of event. Since this year it is really not imaginable any more, the Flying Carpet deserves the name Festival and will continue to grow. Once a year it will take place in Bonn with the aim of bringing dancers and dance enthusiasts together and celebrating this wonderful passion. Plans are already underway for 2019.
