Each class will be taught by Cyndi Cyreigna Elliott, Advanced Instructor of ATS at the Irie Tribal Dance Company Studio.

Registration will be limited to 10 to be certain everyone gets the opportunity to learn in a small class positive atmosphere!

The Fundamentals are indeed the building blocks of ATS. We are going to cover every aspect of the Fundamentals in this 10 hour intensive. The is is going to be your opportunity to ask the all important questions of Form, Technique, and execution.

We will cover Movement! Not only How to Move, but where does this move come from! As an Orthopedic Nurse and Personal trainer, it is important for me not only to teach you to dance, but how to get the most out of your dance!

There will be no rushing from Movement to Movement! We will cover our P.E.A.S(Pivot Bump/Choo-Choo, Egyptian, Arabic, and Shimmy) and Cues in detail! We will explore where the moves begin within you! Execution and Transitions and most importantly, Finishing what you started! Cues, we will discuss Active and Passive Movement as well as Intention!
Throughout the class, we will be building and creating combos using the ATS Level 1 and 2 Vocabulary! We will be covering Slow and well as Fast steps taking great care to properly place these into our muscle memory!
