Jade teaches American Tribal Style Belly Dance, also known as ATS. ATS is a powerful and beautiful dance form created in San Francisco by Carolena Nericcio in the late 1980s. It is influenced by the mesmerizing, folkloric dances of the Middle East, North Africa and Spain; but has a modern, American interpretation and format. ATS is a language of cues, transitions and movements that is used by a group to dance in unison without a formal choreography. Jade teaches both Classic and Modern ATS at various levels.
Classes are on hiatus until further notice. For weekly belly dance classes in Albuquerque, Jade recommends Sirena World Dance Studio.
