What is American Tribal Style® Belly Dance?

American Tribal Style® Belly Dance (ATS®) is a modern transnational fusion, inspired by the folkloric dances of the Spice Route, including Flamenco, classical Indian dance, and Middle-Eastern and North African folk dances. Tribal style belly dance looks old but is actually new.

The 'Tribal' in ATS® refers to the group improvisational format of the dance. We dance in small groups and use non-verbal cues to create art in the moment.

For more information about ATS®, please visit my teacher Carolena Nericcio-Bohlman's website, www.fcbd.com.
