ATS® Combos for Improv and Choreo

ATS® is a strictly improv form of dance; however, when some steps are combined in the same order, they create a particularly beautiful mix of shapes and flow of energy. In this workshop Lisa will teach short combos that will make your slow more compelling and your fast more exciting. These combos are created by putting ATS® moves together in ways that are strategic and sometimes difficult.

This workshop is ideal for ATS® dancers who want to level up their performance. However, dancers who are not familiar with ATS® but pick up steps quickly could integrate these combos into choreography or use them for improv in different types of belly dance.

Fee: $40 by Oct. 16; $45 after

ATS® Reunion: Creating a Welcoming Community

Lisa is a juried instructor for 2020 ATS® Reunion in Phoenix, AZ

There are social, ethical and business reasons for examining how welcoming your dance community (or troupe, or studio) is to minority consumers including people of different race/culture/ethnicity, perceived socioeconomic status, sexual orientation and gender identity, disabilities, size and age.  In this workshop you will learn about hidden bias and ways to counteract it, how to use the stereotype inoculation model and other strategies to welcome diverse people into your community, and concrete strategies about the use of language and images to encourage diversity.
