Belly Dance Classes

Tribal bellydance is a fun and empowering dance form that creates camaraderie and celebrates the strength and beauty of the body. This class will be specific to American Tribal Style® as established by Fat Chance Belly Dance®. ATS® utilizes a shared vocabulary of movements and non-verbal cues to allow a group of dancers to improvise and dance together in the moment. In addition to the fundamentals of dance, topics in costuming, dance history, and music appreciation will be presented.
