DanceCraft offers our community an opportunity to experience the beautiful, powerful and sensual art of Belly Dance in 3 different genres.
• DanceCraft's Folkloric Influenced Group Improv Belly Dance, is our own signature style of group improv, influenced by many cultures in & around the Mediterranean, the Middle east, North Africa, Spain, India & more, including America. It relies upon cues to change up the step work and formations. This style represents the American spirit of women working together in support of one another, and is not considered an authentic dance of any of the regions which influence it. This is the best class for beginners.
• Old School Folkloric Fusion is a choreography class built upon the teachings of John Compton. Jaynellen of DanceCraft has express permission to teach this style from John's Co-Director Rita Alderucci of Haibi'Ru.
• ATS/FCBD®- American Tribal Style Belly Dance/Fat Chance Belly Dance has become highly recognized the world over. It is a group improv dance style, relying upon subtle cues to change up step work, formations and more. It is a fusion dance form. The movements are inspired by folkloric dances of the Middle East, North Africa, Spain, and India. It is a uniquely modern creation that does not represent an “authentic" dance from any particular region. DanceCraft currently has 2 Certified ATS® Sister Studio Instructors, Jaynellen & Paula Nelson.
