4. What is American Tribal Style Bellydance?

American Tribal Style Belly Dance (also known as ATS) is a modern style of belly dance created  by Fat Chance Belly Dance director, Carolena Nericcio-Bohlman. The primary defining characteristic of American Tribal Style Belly Dance is group improvisation. Tribal is generally performed in a group, often at community events such as festivals and parades, with tribal dancers typically favoring a look provided by wide-legged pants gathered at the ankles (aka pantaloons), tops known as cholis and full skirts

5. What is a FCBD Sister Studio?

Sister Studios are graduates of General Skills for ATS® and ATS® Teacher Training. These teachers are dedicated to presenting ATS® as created and developed by FatChanceBellyDance® director and master teacher Carolena Nericcio-Bohlman.  Sister Studios do not blend ATS® with other styles of dance, tribal or otherwise. They present ATS® only, or clearly separate ATS® from the other styles of dance they are presenting.

Our goal is that you, the student, should be able to attend an FCBD® ATS® class anywhere in the world and receive consistent, quality instruction.
