Training & Certification

*Sister Studios are graduates of General Skills for ATS®, ATS® Teacher Training. These teachers are dedicated to presenting ATS® as created and developed by FatChanceBellyDance® Director and Master Teacher Carolena Nericcio. Sister Studios do not blend ATS® with other styles of dance, tribal or otherwise. They present ATS® only, or clearly separate ATS® from the other styles of dance they are presenting. 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.
