Inspiration: Patricia Zarnovican with Light in Babylon

I met Patricia at Gothla in 2018, I think. I was impressed with her dancing and musicality, and this clip certainly doesn’t disappoint on that front. She’s also a lovely person as well as being a lovely dancer. And if you are not familiar with Light in Babylon, is definitely worth dropping by their Bandcamp to give them a listen

Now go watch Patricia bursting with happiness, and subscribe to her YouTube channel!

Inspiration: Philippa at Caravanseray Vienna 2016

Philippa is an amazing ATS® teachers, one of the few with Advanced Teacher Status in the UK, and with excellent tips. I’ve never attended a workshop of hers where I didn’t come out with new information.

And despite ATS® by definition not being a solo endeavor, she does amazing ATS® inspired solos. Enjoy a Throwback Thursday!

Inspiration: Tessera Dance at ATS® Reunion 2020

Tessera Dance is always fantastic for innovative dialect that remains true to the aesthetics of FCBD® Style. Or, in other words, I really enjoyed watching this set, the formation changes for the trio were brilliant, and the costume was inspired for a modern take that still showcases the moves.

The skirts are Bessies (tulip skirts with high waist, link opens in new tab) and the tops are Careless Whispers from Matadore Designs (link opens in new tab). I’m going to try making something for myself akin to the Matadore top, but toned down to use in class, so I’ll report on results when that happens.

Enjoy!

Inspiration: FCBD Alumni at Reunion 2020

This is a wonderful clip featuring Kathy Stahlman, Wendy Allen, Sandi Ball, Jessie Loring and Colette Todorov. Lovely Old School ATS® with old school costuming.

Which was your favourite set from Reunion? Let me know below!

Inspiration: DeAnna at Tribal Migrations

DeAnna Padrón Freeman is a wonderful dancer, and one of the few Advanced Instructors for FCBD®Style. This is a solo she performed at Tribal Migrations in February 2020.

She also runs a great blog full of information for dancers, and runs online classes if you can’t visit her at the Datura Studios. You can view/join her blog at https://www.pranabellydanceandyoga.com/blog
