Friday 15 may : Back to Basics!!!!


- 10am/noon : "Forever Beginner (ATS® Fundamentals)"

Posture is the doorway into the heart of your inner dancer.  Having an open mind and returning to the ATS® core vocabulary will help you polish your technique and develop insight into the importance of ATS® posture.  


- 1pm/3pm : "Attention to Location (All about ATS® Formations)"

Understand your relationship to the other dancers in your tribe as you seamlessly ebb and flow through the shapes we create through ATS® formations.  Identify your own spatial difficulties and learn strategies for staying alert to changes in formation as you dance.  


- 3.30pm/5.30pm : "Zillin' with Precision"

Learn and drill the different zil patterns used to accompany ATS® steps.  



- Up Up Down Down Down

- Push Forward Push Back

- Double Back




Saturday 16 may : High Precision Moves!!!!


- 10am/noon : "Levels and drops"

 Open to all levels of dancers. The stunning contrast of floating and dramatic accents with levels and drops. This is a taxeem moves workshop that focuses on isolation technique and includes a core strength warm up.  Hone in on the beauty, grace and strength of ATS® to create exciting performances.


- 1pm/3pm : "Energy in the Hip!"

Re-sculpt your posture and steps with drills to get more pep in your step and bounce in your hip. Get more grounded in your Ghawazee Shimmy Combo, find balance in your Arabic Orbits, shake from shoulder to tailbone with the Wet Dog!, and contain your Single Bump Half Turn so that you look like you are spinning!  Be prepared to dance- this class will be cardio intensive!  


- 3.30pm / 5.30pm : "Anchor & Release:  Slow Turns and Spins"

In this class, we will apply the 'anchor & release' concept to slow specialty turns and fast spins.  Notice how we gather, build and release energy in Sahra, wraparound, and barrel turns.  Stay 'anchored' to your vertical axis or imaginary 'pole' and you too will execute flawless turns and spins. 




Sunday 17 may : Challenging!!!


- 10am / noon : "Shifting Shapes"

Fading and circling are both ways to change the lead but as dancers, we don't want to broadcast this information to the audience.   Learn how to seamlessly fade and circle up while still presenting the 'dance' so that even when you are transitioning from one leader/group to the next, you still look like you are dancing.  Learn to troubleshoot issues that arise when the tribe is dancing in a circle, such as body angle, determining who the leader is, and what happens when 2 people take the lead at the same time.


- 1pm/3pm : "Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something ATS®"

Explore new steps contributed by our Sister Studios and practice and drill the steps while using the brilliant and intricate FCBD® Dueling Duet formation!  We'll look at the steps and combos through the ATS® filter and you'll understand the artistry and logic of creating a new step.  Slow steps include: Pulse Turn; Double Rainbow; Medusa (ATS® and Indian versions); and Loco Camel.  Fast steps include:  Egyptian Three Quarter Turn; Egyptian Sevillanas, Push Forward Push Back, Box Step, and Alabama Twister.  


- 3.30pm/5.30pm :"Balancing"

- Headwraps

- Baskets and Swords

- Rules while Balancing

- Modifying Moves for Balancing

- Floorwork while balancing
