American Tribal Style Belly Dance is a modern style of belly dance inspired by folkloric dances of the Middle East, North Africa, Spain and India. ATS is all about dancing in a group using a vocabulary of movements, slow and fast, a range of formations and cues. This allows the dancers to communicate while dancing as there is no choreography.
Samantha leads the Karuna troupe. She has been dancing the Fat Chance Belly Dance style of ATS for over 10 years, gaining her Teacher’s Certificate in 2014. Karuna dancers love performing at events, as it gives them the opportunity to dress up in their fabulous costume!
