    • Om Studio, 14 NE 10th Ave

    Every Wednesday! 5:50pm 6:45pm

    Dancing in a safe and nurturing circle, learn tribal basic steps, build core strength, and have fun! Great for women new to belly dance in general or tribal belly dance in particular. Work on isolations and strengthening for all levels while learning basic moves and adding layering, duets, drills, and Tribal Technique.

    **** For all classes, please come in comfortable dance-wear that will allow you to move and sweat. It is helpful to wear clothes that will let you see your body and belly as you hone your movements. If going barefoot isn’t comfortable for you, you may wish to bring lightweight dance shoes. Many dancers choose to wear tribal style accents — skirts, embellished belts, cropped choli tops, flowers and feathers — but you should wear what pleases YOU!

    • Studio Datura 1847 E Burnside St, Portland, OR 97214

    The Spring ATS® Performance Prep – Part I is a 6-week session of classes.  Each class will focus on isolating the components of ATS movements, leading to efficiency of movement and mastery of ATS vocabulary.  Dancers will drill individually and in groups, receiving feedback for further refinement.  The overall intention of this series is to challenge dancers to fine-tune their technique, improve their improvisational skills, and synchronize with their fellow dancers in order to prepare for a public performance.   The final 15 minutes of each class will be improvisational dancing – Yay! – with the following objectives:  strengthening the connection between the dancers, building stamina for performing, provide an opportunity to create choreography in the moment, and working as a group to craft a set.

    Participation in Part I is required for enrollment in Part II.  Part II of the Spring ATS® Performance Prep series will focus on rehearsing for public performances.  Dancers must demonstrate clear knowledge of basic ATS vocabulary, understand ATS formations and the concepts of lead/follow, as well as have strong technique and posture.  Participants in Part II will have the opportunity to put these skills to the test in two public performances at the Art of Movement on Saturday April 27th, 2019 in Hood River.  The performance is optional and there will be participation opportunities for all level of dancer.
