American Tribal Style Belly Dance
THIS IS A DANCE SCHOOL INDEPENDENT FROM PLEASURE POINT YOGA

CONTACT INFO: Inna Dagman: (415) 672 – 4259 / healingdancer25@gmail.com

LOCATION: 3603 Portola Drive, in our dedicated DANCE and Movement Studio.  

American Tribal Style Belly Dance® (Also knows as ATS® and FCBD® style) is a modern dance dialect with ancient roots. In this style we learn a common dance vocabulary, which allows us to dance together improvisationally. This keeps it incredibly alive, spontaneous, and allows us dancers to experience a moment-to-moment connection to our own creativity and to each other, which helps create much joy and fulfillment. These healing, joyful, sisterhood-creating aspects have led to this dance style spreading across the world!

The movements of ATS® belly dance are inspired by traditional Middle Eastern belly dance, classical Indian, north African, and Flamenco dance styles. These classes will help you develop strength and flexibility, a healthy uplifted posture, confidence, self-love, and a healthy connection to your femininity. All ages, backgrounds, and shapes welcome!

Level 1: Wednesdays 6:00pm – 7:00pm
Fundamentals of American Tribal Style Belly Dance® (FCBD® style) – beginner level, no experience necessary.

Level 2: Wednesdays 7:15pm – 8:30pm
Intermediate, student performance troupe. Knowledge of ATS® foundations and instructor approval needed.

About the instructor: Inna Dagman

Inna has had a passion for dance her whole life, however, finding belly dance represents a transformative moment in her evolution as a woman, artist, and healer. This ancient feminine form of movement first entranced Inna in 2010, in San Francisco CA at the legendary Fat Chance Belly Dance® studio, the birth place of the now world-renowned American Tribal Style® Belly Dance. She witnessed women of a variety of shapes, ages and backgrounds, proud beautiful bellies exposed, dancing together as empowered sisters. The room was filled with joy, pride, and the magnetic power of the feminine. Inna was hooked. Since that moment years ago Inna has become an acclaimed tribal belly dancer, teaching and performing regularly in the Santa Cruz area and beyond. She leads a student troupe of women dancers, Shekinah Tribal Belly Dance, where the focus is on embodiment of the Divine Feminine, and healthy connection among women.
Inna has also completed an extensive internship focused on the healing effects of dance, at the Center for Arts in Medicine at the University of Florida. She has had the honor to learn from leaders in the filed of healing through creativity and went on to facilitate workshops and groups on healing creativity and dance at hospitals, universities, in private settings, and currently, at an addiction recovery center, Embodied Recovery. In 2015 Inna has also entered private practice as a healing bodyworker, specializing in Craniosacral therapy.
Currently, in both her performance and teaching dance offerings, Inna focuses on dance as a transformational force for healing and embodiment of the Sacred.
