Philippa Moirai : American Tribal Style® Belly Dance Intensive


Immerse yourself in a wonderfully rich experience of American Tribal Style® belly dance with Philippa Moirai this Spring! Diving into a selection of dynamic movements from the FatChanceBellyDance® fast and slow repertoire, Philippa will guide you through a series of drills focusing on strong dance technique and smooth transitions, individually and within groups. Working with requests from those attending, classical and modern movements will be covered, with plenty of dance time. The first two hours will be steeped in technique, building up to more complex concepts and advanced formations in the final hour. Treat yourself to a full afternoon of dance, as you develop and refine your Tribal technique, whilst connecting with other 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 third hour continues straight on from the first 2 and is open to Intermediate and Advanced students with a strong understanding of ATS®.

This workshop is eligible for SSCE Certification for those part of the SSCE Programme.
