New! American Tribal Style®
American Tribal Style® (ATS®) Belly Dance is modern dance form created in San Francisco, California, in the 1980s by Carolena Nericcio, director of Fat Chance Belly Dance®. Favoring folkloric Egyptian music, and using modified movements from dances from North Africa, Spain and India, a group of dancers use a series of non-verbal cues, gestures and step combinations that can form an improvisational dance that looks choreographed but really isn't.
