SUNDAY MARCH 12TH, 10AM-NOON: UNITY FORMAT: Unity is Lady Fred's tribal fusion improv format; it epitomizes her innovative take on tribal fusion bellydance in group improvisational form. It is rooted in Lady Fred's foundation training in ATS bellydance with her experience as a student and troup member with Jill Parker. After rigourous training and dancing in Ultra Gypsy, Fred embarked on her own dance journey. She developed her signature style of avant garde bellydance and honed her craft expanding some of her favorite ideas into her own brand of Signal Gesture Improv creating her format called Unity. The vocabulary that comprises Unity incorporates the basic ATS concept of lead/follow, however, with Fred's style and sensibilities, primarily includeing Jazz-Age movement accents, vernacular-dance and syncopation all wrapped up in a challenging and symmetrical formation that rotates in a figure 8. $35
