10am-12pm: "Beautifully Basic is Never Boring" w/ Lacey Sanchez
American Tribal Style® Bellydance has a classic beauty that is regal and inspiring. Even though the style has grown by leaps and bounds as it has expanded from a dance based in San Francisco, California to now a world wide phenomenon, sometimes honing in on its fundamentals can be jaw dropping. In this workshop we will zero in on the Classic ATS® steps and find the rich beauty and surprising variety that exist in this unique dance form.
Sign-in will begin 45mins before the workshop starts. All workshops will be located at Sky Studio at 101 Lewis Avenue, Billings Montana.
