Carolena Nericcio-Bohlman is creator of the popular American Tribal Style (ATS) Belly Dance.
Her childhood fascination with body-adornment evolved into the study of folkloric textiles, a body full of tattoos, and a personal collection of jewelry and textiles from around the world.
For eight years, beginning in 1974, Carolena danced with the San Francisco Classic Dance troupe, whose eclectic style was derived from classic Egyptian, folkloric, and other enticing influences.
Once she discovered belly dance, she was inspired to create ATS, which combines a vocabulary of natural movements and cues inspired by folkloric dances of the Middle East and India, majestic costuming, and carefully chosen music that celebrates folk art of the old world.
Carolena has created a series of DVDs, CDs, and books that offer ATS instruction, performance, and inspiration.
