Dancing with Kristine Adams in Lima, Peru Pt. 2

Dancing with Kristine Adams in Lima, Peru Pt. 2

Kristine was sponsored by Sadhana Danza Wasi: Tribal & Fusion in Lima, Peru. The studio is run by Sandra . We were going through Lima during these workshops so I contacted Sandra (Shakti Prema Ananda). Sandra was gracious enough to let us stay at her place during our time in Lima. Sandra is a wonderful tribal dancer, and a beautiful person inside and out!

1st Workshop

The first night of workshops with Kristine was “New Moves in ATS”. This was a very fun workshop that focused on the next generation of ATS vocabulary. The thing I find the most interesting about ATS is that if it is done correctly, a dancer can dance with another ATS dancer anywhere in the world. Theoretically, it should work because the format is the language, and this allows the dancers to communicate through cues while improvising the dance performance. I think this is what makes American Tribal Style beautiful and transcendental. I am excited to say the legacy continues and the new combos build off traditional ideas, but add some new fun twists! There is a dvd for all the new moves which can be purchased here.
