Carolena Nericcio-Bohlman- Guest Instructor

carolena-800Carolena has compiled a montage of different “tribal” elements into what has been coined American Tribal Style® Belly Dance. ATS® movements are inspired by folkloric dances of the Middle East and India. Aesthetically ATS® is based on the richness of textiles and jewelry from North Africa and India. ATS® is a method of improvisational choreography, using a vocabulary of natural movements and cues allowing the dancers to communicate via gesture and eye contact when dancing together. The effect is vibrant thread drawing the audience into the tapestry.

Currently Carolena directs FatChanceBellyDance® at her studio and resource center in San Francisco, CA. She masterminds the business side of the Nakarali Jewelry Company, co-owned with Colleena Shakti.

Students can find studio classes in San Francisco, via Skype, and On-line Classes. Instruction is further augmented by a collection of instructional DVDs and international workshop travel.

Through workshops such as Tribal:Pura with Megha Gavin, Carolena and her FatChanceBellyDance® instructors take ATS® around the globe. In addition to instruction, Carolena provides business consultation in the form of Tribal Counsel and ATS® Troupe Consulting.

When she’s not traveling the globe or working at her studio, Carolena enjoys spending time with her partner Loretta Nericcio-Bohlman, exercising, sewing, knitting and reading.

She will be offering business courses on business diversification, communication, and more.
