Durrah began belly dancing in 1996, and began studying FCBD® format ATS® in 1998. Durrah has studied folk dance and hula as well as belly dance, bringing elegance and strength to her dancing. She has been making belly dance costumes since she began dancing, and makes custom coin bras, belts, and cholis.
Aurelia began belly dancing in the early 2000s while living in Ohio, studying tribal fusion. After moving to Virginia, Aurelia began to study American Tribal Style® and eventually joined Serenity Tribal in January of 2012. Aurelia also studies Bharatanatyam, classical Indian dance.
American Tribal Style® belly dance uses "structured improvisation" - the dancers use small nonverbal cues to tell each other what they're going to do next - no choreography! The beauty of ATS® is in the synchronization of the dancers and the elegant and powerful movement vocabulary.
Sister Studios are graduates of General Skills for ATS® and ATS® Teacher Training. These teachers are dedicated to presenting ATS® as created and developed by Fat Chance Belly Dance® director and master teacher Carolena Nericcio.
Durrah offers private lessons in American Tribal Style® as well as costuming and sewing techniques. Please contact for availability.
