America has it's very own style of belly dance: American Tribal Style® belly dance! This dance is celebrates the individual body while also teaching you to dance with others. American Tribal Style® (ATS®) uses a body language to allow your inner dancer to flourish and share with others. Studying ATS® gives you all the benefits of belly dance - strength, flexibility - and adds beauty when dancing with others. This class will make your heart sing - and pump 'cause ATS® is a great workout!ATS(r) certification logo

Margaret has been a certified ATS® instructor since March 2012.

Clothing: Please wear SOCKS or ballet slippers or protect feet from floor! Any quality of ballet slipper will work (you can even order them on Amazon). Wear comfortable clothing that you can stretch and move in. Example: Jeans would be too tight but stretch pants or shorts would be fine. Skirts are also good as long as they are not tight fitting. A scarf around your hips is also good especially if it has fringe.
