Last year we brought Wendy Allen to Alaska for the first time and she won our hearts and dancing souls. It was a sold out workshop!  We've invited her back this year to continue educating Alaska ATS® dancers and enthusiasts.  She's offering different topics and this time, two days worth of instruction.  


"Wendy is one of the biggest names not only in ATS®, but in Tribal Belly Dance. She's been able to harness strength, beauty, and absolute grace in her dance, and is a kind and knowledgeable teacher.  Wendy is a dance hero of mine, and I hope to be half as good as her someday." -Carrie 


"Wendy Allen has always had an urge to express herself artistically, but couldn’t find a way until she found her home in American Tribal Style® belly dance. She has been part of the FatChanceBellyDance® family for 13 years, has been a member of the professional troupe for 10 of those years, and a teacher for 11. She has had the pleasure of teaching both domestically and internationally.  She has a deep passion for and commitment to the integrity of the dance form, and loves to share that passion with her students"



Basic knowledge of Taxeem, Body Wave, Torso Twist, Circle Step, Egyptian, Arabic, Pivot Bump and Shimmy required.
