American Tribal Style® Bellydance

American Tribal Style® (ATS®) evolved in San Francisco, USA and involves a blend of bellydance, gypsy (Ghawazee) traditions and Flamenco. It is danced as a tribe, and has cues built into the moves to enable people to follow a leader and exchange leadership. It has flourished as a style around the world and is now on offer in Petrie thanks to Soul Dance.
