American Tribal Style® Belly Dance

Want to find your artistic side? Looking for a new exercise program? Need some fun “girl time”?


Classes will begin in January at 125 Live. Terri has fractured her foot and will be recovering this fall. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Join Terri, certified American Tribal Style® teacher, to learn the beauty, grace and strength of ATS®. ATS is a group improvisational dance that blends several Middle Eastern styles of dance with Indian and Flamenco accents.  

At Third Eye Tribal, we offer 2 levels:

Level 1 (Beginning)
Level 1 introduces you to the basic movement vocabulary, leading and following and cuing.

Class time: Tuesdays at 6:30 pm AND Wednesdays at 9am at 125 Live (125 Elton Hills Dr NW, Rochester, MN 55901)

Level 2/3 (Intermediate)
Level 2/3 introduces you to the more complex movements and give you the opportunity to dance with a larger group of women in the ATS format.

Class time: Tuesdays at 7:30pm at 125 Live (125 Elton Hills Dr NW, Rochester, MN 55901)

Preparing for your first class...


Dress comfortably.

Most people wear some type of yoga or dance pant and a tank top or closer fitting t-shirt to class.  Your clothing should allow you to move.  There are no special shoes required, in fact, most people dance with bare feet.  If you have foot or knee problems and plan on dancing in shoes, please bring a pair of dance sneakers or shoes you haven't worn outside. You do NOT have to show your belly although some dancers do that once they begin to feel more comfortable in class.


Plan to have fun!

Belly dance is based on learning to isolate different parts of your body and move them seemingly independently from other parts.  It is pretty fun and definitely funny when folks are just starting to learn.  We welcome every person whether you have danced before or not.  Because American Tribal Style is based on group improvisation, you will have opportunities to get to know the other members of your class.  Wonderful friendships and great communities are often formed from belly dance classes.


It doesn't even feel like exercise.

Many students tell me that class doesn't even feel like exercise, but belly dance can actually be a great low-impact activity that tones, strengthens and builds your core.  During class, Terri will offer variations on movements for those who want more of a work out or those who want less of one.
