Saturday, June 24: 9:30 am-11:30 pm: Work That Skirt! ~ ATS® Embellishments/Props

Use your skirt as an extension of your body to not only enhance your movement but to maximize your space to the fullest. Employ it as a natural enhancement to Traditional American Tribal Style® vocabulary as well as some fun Irie ATS® Movement Dialect. We will cover the making skirt movements fluid, cueing movements with skirts, and creating a skirt routine that will leave your audience mesmerized. 
Skill level: ATS® or Group Improvisational background.
