***These intensives will he held at Tamarind Studio, not Next Act Theatre***
Join various Tamarind members for four workshops highlighting some of the basics of ATS, or American Tribal Style Bellydance. These workshops are perfect for seasoned ATS dancers looking to enhance or revisit their skills, as well as brand new dancers who have just starting classes, or even someone who has not yet begun to take classes, but would like a wonderful first experience! 
The four intensives are: 
Level 1 intensive - covering the basic four slow ATS moves and the basic four fast ATS moves that function as the foundation for all other ATS moves and skills. 
9:00 am to 11:00 am at Tamarind Studio - $25
Formations and transitions – covering basic ATS formations (duet, trio, quad) and how to circle up and fade those formations smoothly and professionally. We will also cover how to transition from one formation to another so that every part of the performance is part of the dance, and nothing is lost or treated as ‘filler’! 
11:30 am to 1:30 pm at Tamarind Studio - $25
Costuming – This mainly lecture workshop will cover the essentially parts of standard ATS costuming and how to customize it to your own tastes: skirts, cholis, coin bras, pantaloons, and accessories! 2:00 pm to 3:30 pm at Tamarind Studio - $25
Hair and Headwraps – This can often be the most perplexing part of your costuming! We will cover how to best arrange your ‘hair garden’ to make sure your troupe can see all your cues! We will also discuss turbans. 3:30 pm to 5:00 pm at Tamarind Studio - $25
Held Saturday, 8/11/18 at Tamarind Studio, these workshops are open to any dancer of any style and any skill level. If you purchase all four as a package in advance, the discounted price is $80! 

Fans can be incorporated as a specialty or concept piece within your performance set. Fans add a bit of spark and color and are an audience favorite! SuperBeth will show you how to handle and hold a large flutter fan, and will lead you through a series of fast steps that will showcase these colorful props. Expect a good upper body workout! 
For this workshop, you will need two silk “Flutter” fans, one for the right hand and one for the left hand. You will need to request this specifically when ordering. These are the short flutter fans, not the long fan veils. For examples or to purchase, go to
