Bellydance: Technical Treasures
This course is meant for those who wish to dive deeper into the lineage of Tribal Fusion Bellydance and want to study more of the Salimpour and ATS technique. We are literally adding an extra layer to both pillars: finger cymbals & ATS! Perfecting the ATS dance vocabulary as taught in level 1 and/or level 2, Technical Treasures will also cover various ATS formations and explore the improvised choreography system. This means that you will be dancing ATS as instructed by Fat Chance Belly Dance.
Over the course of the year we will also deepen our understanding of musicality as taught in both level 1-2. We will add 4 finger cymbal patterns to the known layering drills of both level 1 and 2. By adding finger cymbal patterns to your known drill sequences you will strengthen your layering technique and prepare your body for improvisational dancing where all 4 layers are combined with ease and grace.
Since we are building on a Fat Chance Belly Dance ATS vocabulary as taught in level 1 and 2, we recommend you take this class in combination with level 1 or level 2 and purchase your own pair of finger cymbals from either Saroyan or Turqoise.
* We recommend you to do this class in combination with the Tribal Fusion: Level 1 or Level 2 (see below)

Accessible to dancers in Tribal Fusion: Level 1/Level 2 or with a similar experience background.
Tribal Fusion Bellydance is a modern, western form of bellydance which was created by fusing American Tribal Style bellydance (ATS) and American Cabaret bellydance. Artists frequently incorporate elements from Popping, Hip Hop, 'Egyptian' or 'Cabaret' bellydance, along with movement principles from traditional forms such as Flamenco, Kathak, Odissi, and other folkloric and classical dance styles.
In Tribal Fusion Bellydance level 1 you learn the basics of both American Tribal Style Bellydance and West Coast Cabaret Bellydance as taught in the Salimpour formats.
Over the full course of level 1 you will be trained in musicality, various Arabic rhythms, basic Suhaila Salimpour dance technique and Tribal Fusion history. You will be taught a basic drill of 3 layers. We will cover various foot, hip and arm patterns and combine them in different ways. Finally, we will also cover a series of combinations derived from the previously covered ATS steps for you to incorporate into your own Tribal Fusion Bellydance practice. Finger cymbals play is not a part of this course.
In Tribal Fusion Bellydance level 2 the ATS steps of level 1 are varied upon and fused together with West Coast cabaret. They then become actual Tribal Fusion Bellydance combinations. Furthermore, we expand our ATS vocabulary with another series of steps as instructed by Fat Chance Bellydance.
This intermediate level asks for a solid understanding of ATS, Salimpour technique and basic finger cymbal play as they act as the corner stones to the structure of this class. It is the follow up course for those who covered all the materials from level 1. Therefore, it is recommended to combine level 2 with the Technical Treasure class (see above) to maintain and strengthen your technique and to fully grasp the fused combinations.
