American Tribal Style® Belly Dance Intensive with Philippa Moirai

Diving into a selection of dynamic movements from the FatChanceBellyDance® fast and slow repertoire, this workshop will focus on honing strong dance technique and smooth transitions, individually and within groups. Working with requests from those attending, there will be plenty of drill and dance time in the first two hours, building up to more complex concepts and advanced formations in the last hour.

Treat yourself to a wonderfully rich afternoon of American Tribal Style® belly dance, as you develop and refine your Tribal technique, and connect with other lovely dancers.

The first two hours of this workshop are open to all with a knowledge of the ATS® basics and lead & follow concepts – both beginners and more experienced dancers are very welcome. The final hour continues on from the first 2 and is open to Intermediate and Advanced students with a strong understanding of ATS®. Please email: if you are unsure of your level.
