Level 1 - ATS® Basics - Getting back to basics! Review and refine! Technique, formation, and control. This class is designed using the FCBD® format. Level 1 helps reinforce ATS® posture, angle, technique, and control of the basic fast moves as well as basic slow.
Whether you are a seasoned dance or a newbie, these classes will be beneficial to help refine, and reinforce the ATS basic vocabulary and beyond!

Level 2 - ATS® and Beyond - This is where we have some fun!! Learn the more dynamic steps that keep an audience wanting more! Refine individual technique by drilling basic steps and their variations in creative combinations. If there are steps you specifically want to go over, now is the time to ask! Be ready to drill and zil! and have a GREAT time!

Bellydance experience is not required, but helpful (especially in level 2). The only requirements are that you come to classes, ready to learn some pure ATS® as created by Carolena Nericcio!
