You can take classes in American Tribal Style® belly dance, Egyptian, Oriental, Cabaret, Transnational Fusion, Brazilian Silvestre Dance Technique and modern tribal fusion.

These classes will be held at the American Mountaineering Center and Golden Community Center.

Join us on Thursday, April 24 at 7 p.m. for “What is ATS?” With Carolena Nericcio and Megha Gavin. The presentation will be at the Buffalo Rose and will be followed by an ATS dance demonstration and party (hafla).
