What is a Sister Studio

A Sister Studio is actually a person rather than a building and in this case it’s me, Kelley.

Sister Studios are graduates of General Skills for American Tribal Style® belly dance (ATS®) and in addition have undertaken ATS® Teacher Training with their mentor and master teacher Carolena Nericcio in order to qualify as a Sister Studio.

These teachers are dedicated to presenting ATS® as created and developed by FatChanceBellyDance® director and master teacher Carolena Nericcio who is based in San Francisco. Sister Studios do not blend ATS® with other styles of dance, tribal or otherwise.They present ATS® only and clearly separate ATS® from any other styles of dance they may present.

Our goal is that you, the student, should be able to attend an FCBD® ATS® class anywhere in the world and receive consistent, quality instruction.
