Fort of the Stranger -
Mother-DaughterTribal    Come, and explore American Tribal    
 Style Belly Dance(ATS®) with
 Mother-Daughter Tribal!
Pioneered and developed by Carolena Nericcio,       founder and director of Fat Chance Belly Dance® of San  Francisco, ATS® is a fusion of dance
 genres, blending influences from Middle Eastern and  North African dance, Rajasthani folk dance, 
 as well as Flamenco. Utilising traditional music and
distinctive costuming, ATS® presents a modern format with the "feel" of antiquity, ever-respectful
of the cultures that inspire it.  
As Mother-Daughter Tribal, our purpose, beyond simply teaching classes, is to promote not only the
feeling of well-being resulting from the very physicality of dance, but also the sense of
community that develops amongst the dancers
as they master the steps and establish the rapport that will enable them to perform together with
confidence and  joy.
We welcome women and girls of all ages, all shapes and sizes, all faiths and backgrounds. Most
particularly, we encourage inter-generational participation.
