Honoring the past. Inspiring the future.
L.A. Tribal is a Los Angeles bellydance troupe performing American Tribal Style® bellydance (commonly known as ATS®). It is a modern style created in San Francisco, California, by FatChanceBellyDance® (FCBD®) director, Carolena Nericcio.
American Tribal Style® (ATS®) is a blend of different ethnic styles in movement and costume. It has nothing to do with representing a particular tribe, combining movement vocabularies and regional costuming from several regions. The dancers interact with each other while improvising a simple movement vocabulary with the same stylization among all members.
