American Tribal Style ®
with Trio Cornucopia
ATSbelly dance's movements are inspired by folkloric dances of the Middle East, North Africa, Spain and India that are danced in a group. What’s really impressive about this style is how the group remains together and dances in sync, even though everything is improvised! How is this possible? Through regular training the dance vocabulary is learnt and during the performance the lead dancer gives a ‘cue’ or signal to indicate which move will come next. During the dance, roles change fluidly, giving each dancer a chance to lead or follow! Dancing together in a group is not only lots of fun - it’s also a great way to develop your dance skills, from spatial awareness to increasing your reaction time, to learning new rhythms or playing ‘zills’ (finger cymbals)!
From A2 level upwards
Tribal Fusion is a fusion between ATS (American Tribal Style) and other dance styles. The possibilities for expression, music, costumes, moves are limitless! In this class we will work on precise technique, layering, strong arms and shimmies which we'll practise in combination with each other. Don't forget to bring your ‘zills’ (finger cymbals) along!
From A/M level upwards
Ballet for adults
Ballet is for everyone, regardless of age or body shape. Ballet exercises boost strength throughout your body, from the small intrinsic muscles of your feet to the larger muscles of your back, glutes and calves and will improve your flexibility, posture and alignment. This helps general ease and grace of movement and like any exercise, it reduces stress levels. Ballet, in particular, is fantastic at working your mind and your muscle memory and is a great addition to your belly dance classes or as a stand alone class.
Beginner class (open to all levels)
Oriental dance technique
How do you do that again?
Get back to the basics and polish your belly dance technique! With no choreography to learn you have more time to really get to grips with isolations, steps and layering moves which are practised in small combinations or in improvisation exercises. This class is great for all levels; for beginners needing more time to practise, for advanced dancers wanting to refine their technique and get rid of bad habits or for anyone more interested in technique than choreography.
Monday class is open to all levels, Wednesday class from A/M - F.
