Sammie’s Workshop: Work That Belly! Belly Dance Conditioning and Drills! 4-5 PM
Get ready to SWEAT! If you’re not already familiar with Sammie’s technique classes, this is a fun (and slightly more intense) way to get acquainted! Nothing held back – this belly dance conditioning workshop will hit all of the major muscles used in belly dance and get them working hard! Bring plenty of water and a yoga mat if you’d like a little bit of extra cushion for the floor work!

Dayl’s Workshop: Continuing Introduction to ATS!!! 5-6 PM
American Tribal Style® belly dance is a celebration of feminine and evocative movements that are rooted in the earth. It has been designed to bring out the best in people of all ages, shapes and sizes. The dance is created through group improvisation using a common vocabulary of movements, steps and cues. ATS® combines movement from folkloric inspired dances to a fusion of modern and ancient dance techniques from North India, the Middle East, Spain and Africa. For more information about ATS®, please visit http://fcbd.com/about/

In this workshop you’ll continue to learn the basic moves on which to build your repertoire! Open to dancers and movers of all ages, genders and abilities. All levels of ATS experience will be catered to!
