Choreography works your brain, muscle memory and coordination while creatively giving you a perspective on ways to arrange movements to a piece of music using a range of technique and seamless transitions.

Put your technique to work in this fun and energizing workshop! From sharp & percussive to soft & fluid, we will drill basic technique with variations as well as turns, traveling steps and combinations. By the end of the workshop, you will be dancing a dynamic, short choreography to one of belly dance’s most beloved songs – “Alf Layla Wa Layla.”

Intro to ATS with Baseema

September 24th 2017 11:00am – 12:30pm

Register for this Workshop Now!


American Tribal Style® belly dance is a transnational fusion dance with elements from the Middle East, North Africa, Spain, India, and other countries. These were stirred into a “melting pot” to create a uniquely American style of dance.
ATS® is group improvisation where a shared vocabulary of moves allows the dancers to create art in the moment. While it looks choreographed, it is totally improvised.
Baseema along with one of her troupe-mates, Joanne, will share some of their favorite combinations. You’ll be dancing ATS® before you know it!
