Why ATS® (American Tribal Style)? by BiBi • August 27, 2014 

Why study ATS® versus other styles of belly dance?   It’s a personal choice, of course, and it depends on your goals and interests.   Belly dance is a beautiful and enjoyable dance in all its many forms.   However, ATS® might appeal to you because:

improvisational tribal style belly dance focuses on the camaraderie of dancing with a group.  It’s fun! If you learn the ATS® movement vocabulary, you can dance with any other ATS® dancers around the world, even if you don’t share the same spoken language - women of different body types and ages feel welcome in ATS®.   ATS® is the original “tribal” style of belly dance.  Even if you are interested in exploring tribal fusion, you first need a foundation in the styles you are fusing.  How can you possibly fuse styles that you do not know?

Brenda has studied and performed Egyptian style belly dance for over a decade and studied and performed Tribal Fusion for several years.  In addition, she has spent the past 5 years focusing on American Tribal Style® (ATS®). In 2014, she completed her General Skills Classic, General Skills Modern, and Teacher Training certificates with Carolena Nericcio-Bohlman (founder and director of Fat Chance Belly Dance® and creator of ATS®) and Megha Gavin (founder and director of Devyani Dance Company and creator of some ATS® dialect). She also took workshops with Devi Mamak (founder and director of Ghawazee Caravan and creator of some ATS® dialect).

Brenda is a Fat Chance Belly Dance® Sister Studio, and she continues to attend workshops with master ATS® instructors whenever possible. She also studies and performs Egyptian and folkloric styles of belly dance with Lotus Belly Dance Studio.
