Formations and Transitions that work (1 hour)

Group presentations are strengthened by solid formations, where each dancer knows their position and can quickly and easily respond to cues from the leader. These formations morph, changing shape and size as the performance progresses. In this workshop, Carolena will discuss the fine points of ATS® formations, giving insight into the positions, sight lines and placement. She will discuss the importance of clear and exciting transitions between formations, and also include transitions between dancers and between moves, including what your feet are doing under your skirt. *Dancers should know the basics of Taxeem, Bodywave, Hand Floreo, Arm Undulations, Camel Walk, Torso Twist, Circle Step, Shimmy, Arabic Basic, Egyptian Basic, Pivot Bumps and Choo-choos. Or be preceded by True Tribal Basics & Tribal Combinations.

Join Carolena and Megha as we explore new steps contributed by our Sister Studios, and a few by FCBD®, including Dueling Duets.
