FatChanceBellyDance® Style, formerly American Tribal Style®, is a modern style of dance created by FatChanceBellyDance® director, Carolena Nericcio-Bohlman.
FCBD® Style is based on group improvisation rather than choreography. This dance uses a standardized “vocabulary” of dance movements with built in cues and transitions that make it possible for dancers to improvise together in set formations.
Sister Studios are graduates of General Skills for FCBD® and FCBD® Teacher Training. These teachers are dedicated to presenting FCBD® Style as created and
developed by FatChanceBellyDance® director and master teacher Carolena Nericcio-Bohlman.
Sister Studios do not blend FCBD® Style with other styles of dance; they present FCBD® Style only, or clearly separate the syle from the other styles of dance they are presenting.
Our goal is that you, the student, should be able to attend an FCBD® Style class anywhere in the world and receive consistent, quality instruction.
