Pioneered and developed by Carolena Nericcio, founder and director of Fat Chance Belly Dance® of San Francisco, ATS® (FCBD) 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.
Mother-Daughter Tribal was established in 2010, in the northern suburbs of Chicago. 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 dancers of all ages, all shapes and sizes, all identifications, faiths and backgrounds.
Most particularly, we encourage inter-generational participation.
