Thursday: 6:45 to 7:45pm ATS® Fundamentals, Basics & Beyond
Dance Fundamentals will have you dancing in your very first class! Drill It/Dance It!. Each warm and welcoming one-hour class focuses on learning the basic movements of ATS® with plenty of drills designed to commit the steps and dance vocabulary to muscle memory. Experience the magic of ATS® as you learn to use the steps to dance with partners in duet, trio and quartet formations. Each week includes ziils, lead and follow concepts and movement combinations. New sessions start every 6 weeks but you can jump in and start this on-going class series at any time, OK to drop-in for drills and review too. Prerequisite: no prior dance experience required, zils/finger cymbals required by week 3
Thursday: 8:00 to 9:00pm – Intermediate ATS®
Expand your ATS® vocabulary and take your skills to the next level. In intermediate class we build upon ATS® Fundamentals with more complex movements, refine indivdual and group technique through extended drills, and incorporate performance techniques and concepts that will add even more excitement to your dance!
Prerequisite: solid understanding of ATS fundamentals and the basics of leading and following, recommend 6 months of ATS® belly dance study prior to joining the intermediate class
