ATS® is a modern dance fusion originated in the US and combines beautiful steps from Indian Dances, powerful arm movements from Flamenco as well as active hip-work originated from the Middle East. ATS® is new in Singapore and is an improvisational group dance where woman can explore their feminine energy (Shakti) and have fun dancing together. The music for this dance has nuances of Middle Eastern Folkloric, Indian Classical as well as Latino flavour.
ATS® is a gentle full-body workout which is very beneficial to your posture and for building strength and consciousness in your body. Slow and fast steps will activate your Chakras and make you feel energized and more balanced after the workout. Improvising with the steps you learn in class will help you to disconnect from daily life and make you feel more present in the moment.
