    Default ATS 3/4 shimmy?

    Is there a difference? I took my first ATS class today, a lot of fun. I could do this shimmy fairly well, but I definitely struggled with it in my regular class, which has more cabaret and tribal fusion influence because of my teacher. The same question goes for the taxeem, which turned out to be totally different from the one I learned.

    Hello,

    I'm Macy and new here and also new for the belly dance. Nice to meet you.~
    I just start to learn belly dance a week ago, and I don't understand what's the ATS. Would you like tell me what is it?

    Hikari: Yes, there are some differences, but I'm not the one to say which and what as I am not a student of ATS (I've just observed it and compared it to what I already know of).

    Hi Macy. ATS is an abbreviation for American Tribal Style belly dance. You can read more about it here: Fat Chance Belly Dance Instruction

    Among non-tribal dancers a taqsim is a (musical) solo improvisation - or the dancer's interpretation of it.
