Description

What is it that is so enticing about dancing with a sword? Mystery, danger, thrills, and SKILLZ. Yes, skills with a 'z'! Let's take our love for ATS®, and our intrigue with swords, and unite them together to develop our skills in performing improvisational sword for ATS®. The focus of this workshop is to empower you to smoothly present ATS® in a small space, while balancing a sword on your head, and wearing zils... just like you've seen in those Old School FCBD® videos! You will be in formation, and what you learn here will also strengthen your solo or group stage game as well.

Minimum requirements: (Level 1.5+) For intermediate to advanced students/teachers. Strong knowledge of the Classic ATS® steps, and the flock of birds concept.

What to wear and bring:

  • Your usual ATS® class wear outfit (choli & skirt, or yoga/gym outfit--essentially, clothes you can move in)

  • Zills

  • Sword (or a friend who has a sword so you can share)

  • Ballet-flat dance shoes or socks (unless you want to dance barefoot)

  • Appropriate sword-balancing headgear: Non-slip scarf with bobby pins, assuit headband, or turban

  • A full water bottle

  • Your packed snacks for the snack break in the middle

  • A willingness to experience joy and connection

Please note: Pre-registration is required for this workshop if you want to use a CC, as I am only able to accept cash on the day-of.

Additionally, a portion of the proceeds will go towards supporting the OACC, and I will be donating all of my personal earnings from this workshop to charities that support civil liberties for all (and like-minded causes).

American Tribal Style® with Kelsey is a great fit for you if:

  • You'd like to learn practical ATS® tips, tricks, and techniques that have been passed down directly from Carolena and other FCBD® teachers you know and love

  • You’re looking for exercise that is fun!

  • You thrive in community or are craving community

  • You wanna shake shake shake it!

  • You want to connect with and trust your body more

  • You’d like to be challenged in a new way

  • You have something primal and powerful within you wanting to be expressed
