Workshop Descriptions:

Moving Sculptures with Lacey: A molding of the unique dance of ATS®
Exploring the unique design of some of our favorite ATS® steps and beyond. Join Lacey as she shares some of her favorite slow and fast steps in this beautiful dance! We'll look at sculpting the body into these lovely movements, then set them into a moving sculpture in groups.

Beautifully Basic is Never Boring! with Lacey:
American Tribal Style Bellydance has a classic beauty that is regal and inspiring. Even thought the style has grown by leaps and bounds as it has expanded from a dance based in San Fransisco, California to now a wold wide phenomenon, sometimes honing in on it's Fundamentals can be jaw dropping. In this workshop we will zero in on the Classic ATS® steps and find the rich beauty and surprising variety that exist in this unique dance form.

Find Your I (eye) In Voice: (inner voice) with Lee Kobus of Foolproof
The concept of this class is a culmination of my art background integrated with the era of ATS that gave form to tribal fusion and from my personal experience... FoolProof Studio.
With this intellectually-interactive class, I will facilitate a creative problem-solving exercise that is based upon my own approach to costuming. This class welcomes ALL levels and ALL backgrounds...it’s a weird yet liberatingly fun approach to brainstorming ideas. Please join me!!  Bring a notebook, pencil and imagination ~

Take your places, please! with Lacey:
American Tribal Stye is a unique dance form in many ways but one of the biggest things that set us apart is that our dance is improvisational! So we learn not only the steps, how to learn, and how to follow, but also how to move in and create dynamic choices in formations that can really bring our dance to Life!

In this workshop we'll take some of our fundamental steps and create and play in formations that will have your mind spinning with creative ideas!

Down to Earth with Lee Kobus of Foolproof:
The materials. The costuming. Why we keep them, how should we keep them...
Practical demonstrations that may or may not be intuitive, along with what I’ve learned from over a dozen years of working experience regarding the preservation, packing, transportation and storage of your prized possessions. Bonus bit: a portion of the class will be spent examining inspirational textiles

Regal and Rare, ATS Costume Aesthetic Workshop with Lacey:
For some, the first time they saw Fat Chance Bellydance take the stage they knew this dance was for them! It is stunning from head to toe! The full turban, the classic nomadic make-up, the silloutte of the costume, it all brings a sense of wonder!

In this workshop Lacey will help guide students through creating the perfect "Old School" ATS® look!
Dancers are asked to bring their own costume and supplies (Details will be sent to dancers after they register)

As a part of this workshop all participants will receive 2 web resolution photographs from Carrie Myer of The Dancer's Eye Photography of us in full costume! If you are interested in solo shots or smaller group shots you can book a 10min photo session with Carrie who will be set up for portraits directly following our workshop! Sessions are $10 per session (per dancer) and include 1 photo!

Teacher Take-Over with Tempest
Tuesday, October 23rd, 2018
at Florida Tribal Dance

Anatomy of a Song and Dance (co-taught with
musician Nathaniel Johnstone)

Anatomy of a Song and Dance
Are you hearing the music when you dance? Are you REALLY listening?
Most importantly, when you dance, does the audience see the music through you? A key task of a dancer is to be a visual representation and interpretation of the music they are performing to. To achieve this, you need to be able to recognize the layers present in your music, and choose what to work with and how to translate it into movement. We will work with original music by Nathaniel Johnstone, take it apart layer by layer, address the musicality of each part, how it translates into movement on stage, and then put it back together into a solid dance. This workshop will aid you in learning to listen more effectively, identify instrumentation, and make more fabulous choices about what to use as a foundation and what to accent in any piece of music you wish to dance to.
