Where do I begin?
Everyone is required to start with the Level 1 class, ATS® Fundamentals. You must complete AT LEAST six weeks of ATS® Fundamentals before moving on to the Level 2 class, Tribal Combinations. NO EXCEPTIONS.
When does the next session begin?
The next session will be starting soon! Visit the classes page for a complete schedule of classes. Space is limited, so registration is required.
How do I register?
Pre-registration is required. Please click on the "sign up" button on the classes page, and you will be redirected to MINDBODY Online to complete your registration.
Registrations are only good for the session for which they were purchased. These sessions begin and end on specific dates, and are not refundable or transferable to future sessions.
What should I wear?
Wear anything YOU will be comfortable in! Fitted workout clothes work best. You do not need to show your belly (unless you want to). A hip scarf or sash is also recommended, but not required. It will allow you to see the movements of your hips more easily. Please no “noisy” scarves, such as ones with loud coins, as it can make it hard to hear the instructor and is distracting to other students. Bellydance is usually done in bare feet, but any soft soled dance shoe would also be fine. Street shoes are not permitted in the studio.
What else should I bring?
A notebook and water bottle are recommended. You will also need zils (finger cymbals) by the third week. If you do not already own zils, you can purchase them from me for $12 a pair.
How long will it take to learn?
Every student progresses at a different pace. This is dependent on several factors including how connected the student is to her body when she begins and how much she practices at home. If the only time you do these moves is one hour a week in class, it will take longer than if you set aside some time during the week to practice.
