Level 1: These classes are designed for people who have never danced before, people who have danced but not explored this style, and for perfection and review of technique for dancers already familiar with ATS. Class content of Level 1 includes at least one slow and/or one fast new movement per class, and a review of the moves covered the week before. As the session progresses, we add all the moves covered up until that day in combinations during class, so students can learn how to transition and how the steps fit together. You will learn to recognize the cues used for our group improvisational style. You will learn a basic finger cymbal pattern to accompany the dance in Level One. We do supply some loaner zills (finger cymbals) in class and offer them for sale as well. You’ll learn isolation techniques, basic shimmies, turns, traveling steps and cues. Each class also includes stretching and strengthening sections. The same material in Level 1 is repeated every session.
