Brighton Tribal Fusion and ATS® classes

Hilde Cannoodt

TRIBAL FUSION BELLY DANCE

With its roots in ATS® and American Cabaret, Tribal Fusion Belly dance is a hybrid dance style originated from San Francisco. Eclectically combining elements of street dance, flamenco and contemporary dance, Tribal Fusion is a constantly evolving art form.

Using body isolations to express the music, the embodiment of the musical layers is key in this art form: from percussive to melodic. Contrasting dynamic movement from liquid undulations to sharp hip drops are characteristic to this unique style of dance.

9pm - 9.30pm: Creative Lab - this is an add on and can only be booked in combination of Level 2 Tribal Fusion

creative lab: exploring movement. In this 30 minute add on course, we will explore different ideas in choreography and improvisation. Through specific exercises you will learn tools that will help you with creating movement either in an improvised setting or working on writing dances. There will be some choreology (movement analysis) covered in these classes as well, so you will receive some more knowledge in the theory behind dance. We will sometimes use exercises used in Tribal Fusion level 2, hence why this can only be used as an add on class.

AMERICAN TRIBAL STYLE OR ATS®

American Tribal Style® is a dynamic form of belly dance where dancers interact with each other improvisationally. It was created in San Francisco in the 1980’s by Fat Chance Belly Dance® director Carolena Nericcio and is inspired by rich and diverse dance forms from the Middle-East, North Africa, Spain and India. 

The Level 1 class will cover basic ATS® dance vocabulary, along with cues, transitions and formations to enable you to dance in group. Level 3 is a programme of continuous development, with a different theme for each term such as advanced steps and formations, technique, musicality and performance skills.

Regular practice of belly dance will increase core strength and coordination and this style is known to develop confidence and interpersonal communication.
