FatChanceBellyDance General Skills and Teacher Training

Carolena Nericcio-Bohlman and Megha Gavin

July 16, 2016 - July 24, 2016

Join Carolena Nericcio-Bohlman, founder of American Tribal Style® dance and owner of FatChanceBellyDance® along with her Tribal Pura International partner, Megha for a dance intensive that will change the way you understand belly dance. 

About the Facilitator(s)

Carolena Nericcio-Bohlman

An early fascination of permanent body adornment lead 8-year old Carolena to request that her Father, Carl, a collector himself, to buy a ring she could “wear always and not take off.” This concept evolved into the study of folkloric textiles, a body full of tattoos and a collection of jewelry and textiles from around the world.

The discovery of belly dance led to the creation of her own dance style, American Tribal Style® (ATS®) Belly Dance. FatChanceBellyDance® was founded by Carolena Nericcio-Bohlman in 1987 and immediately captured the attention of audiences worldwide with stunning dance performances featuring majestic costuming and layers of tribal jewelry. The music, a carefully chosen collection of both traditional sounds and modern fusion adds to the effect. American Tribal Style® looks old, but it is actually new.

Carolena has compiled a montage of different “tribal” elements into what has been coined American Tribal Style® Belly Dance. ATS® movements are inspired by folkloric dances of the Middle East and India. Aesthetically ATS® is based on the richness of textiles and jewelry from North Africa and India. ATS® is a method of improvisational choreography, using a vocabulary of natural movements and cues allowing the dancers to communicate via gesture and eye contact when dancing together. The effect is vibrant thread drawing the audience into the tapestry.

Currently Carolena directs FatChanceBellyDance® at her studio and resource center in San Francisco, CA. She masterminds the business side of the Nakarali Jewelry Company, co-owned with Colleena Shakti. Students can find classes in San Francisco, via Skype, and soon to arrive On-line Classes. Instruction is further augmented by a collection of instructional DVDs and international workshop travel. Through workshops such as Tribal: Pura with Megha Gavin, Carolena and her FatChanceBellyDance® instructors take ATS® around the globe. In addition to instruction, Carolena provides business consultation in the form of Tribal Counsel and ATS® Troupe Consulting.

When she’s not traveling the globe or working at her studio, Carolena enjoys spending time with her partner Loretta Nericcio-Bohlman, exercising, sewing, knitting and reading.

Megha Gavin began performing very early in life. She took her first dance classes at about the age of 4 and has been creating and performing ever since. Theatre soon caught her attention and that was her passion throughout her schooling years. It was in 1996 that she discovered American Tribal Style® Bellydance and immediately shifted her focus to this art form.

In San Francisco, Megha studied ATS® with the originator of the style from 1996 – 1998. Upon returning to the Southeast, she began teaching ATS® classes in order to create a community of people to dance with. She was the first to offer these classes in this region and has continued teaching pure ATS® for the last 16 years. She continues to teach and perform at sold out workshops across the country and around the world both individually and on the Tribal Pura tour with her teacher/partner, Carolena Nericcio-Bohlman.

In 2003 Megha completed teacher certification with Carolena Nericcio-Bohlman (creator of ATS® and founder of FatChanceBellyDance®) and entered into an exclusive partnership with her. They now take their love and appreciation of this elegant dance style in its original form on the road to co-teach the technique and artistic vision created by Carolena over the last 25 years.

Megha directs the Birmingham, AL based “Devyani Dance Company.” Under her direction, Devyani has performed at countless theatrical events, festivals, weddings, corporate events and private parties over the last 15 years and has been nominated for multiple cultural and artistic awards.

In January 2014, Megha moved to Dallas, TX and while still directing Devyani, she withdrew from teaching weekly classes and shifted her focus instead to the Tribal Pura International events and offerings with Carolena Nericcio-Bohlman.

When not teaching and performing ATS®, Megha homeschools her daughter and studies plant based nutrition, reiki and essential oils.

Awaken Mastery – Integration, Manifestation, Movement, Magic

Georgia Jean and The Circle of Light, Anah Reichenbach & Jonathan Cartagena

About the Facilitator(s)

GEORGIA JEAN : Multi-dimensional healer, Hoop dance initiate and channel
Georgia, a professional artist, actor and stand up comedian, experienced a life changing event in 2004 when she spontaneously developed the ability to channel a higher consciousness called
 The Circle of Light. For the last 10 years, through this connection, and working with many chronically challenged clients (mentally, emotionally, physically, spiritually), Georgia has accumulated a massive amount of recorded material and groundbreaking techniques designed to "transcend the illusion of separation" that keeps humanity, individually and collectively, in a state of suffering, resistance and struggle. She is the coauthor of “The Circle of Light and the Philosopher – Another Magnificent Day – Keys for Unlocking the Soul’s Potential”

Georgia will be teaching the tools of energetic mastery distilled from the wisdom accumulated through her connection to The Circle of Light.

THE CIRCLE OF LIGHT : A non-physical collective of high consciousness energies, (similar to Abraham-Hicks), that come forward in service to the evolution of humanity. Teaching mastery of soul level manifestation, and considered the teachers of teachers, The Circle of Light pick up where most Law of Attraction material leaves off. Their high frequencies are palpable and transformative, their wisdom, both accessible and profound.

Georgia will be channeling The Circle in their soul awakening, deep energetic meditations and for Q & A.

ANAH REICHENBACH AKA HOOPALICIOUS : Hoop Dance Innovator, Teacher and Inspirer
Anah has been credited as being the founder of the modern art of Hoop Dance, and is a pioneer in the Hooping movement.  Over the past 15 years, Anah has traveled the world teaching and performing both live and in commercials for the likes of Cirque du Soleil, Sobe, Nike, Warner Bros, Nickelodeon, Sting, Justin Timberlake, Fergie, The MTV Video Music Awards, Coke, America’s Got Talent and K-Swiss.  The Hoop Revolution® Curriculum that she developed has been the foundation of most other well-known Hoop Dance curriculums.  She is also the star of the feature length documentary “The Hooping Life.” Anah has been featured in many popular publications including The Los Angeles Times, Vanity Fair and Dance Spirit magazine.

In addition to starting this underground dance and culture movement, Anah’s work with celebrities has helped to bring this movement to the mainstream.  Most recently, Anah starred in “HoopBody,” a series of hooping fitness DVDs produced by Gaiam® featuring well-known actress Marisa Tomei.  She worked closely with Ms. Tomei in designing the hooping curriculum taught on the series.

As a consistent leader in the hoop community, Anah created the acclaimed Hoop Revolution Teacher Training Program and the first DVD of the highly anticipated series, "Hoop Revolution's Core Foundation."  She has also won Hooping.org’s 2009 Online Video of the Year and 2010 Instructor of the Year awards.

JONATHAN CARTAGENA: Hoop Dancer & Performer
Originally from Puerto Rico, Jonathan has been dancing since he was 10 years old in numerous dance and performance groups. His movement background easily translated to the hoop and his fast-paced, fluid style and mesmerizing head hooping has garnered him quick recognition. In 2014 his dancing was highlighted in the Masquerade Sensorium promotional video and his "Fall Hooping in NYC" video was featured in Hooping.org who labeled him as "one to watch". As a graduate of the Circle Evolution Hoop Alchemy for Performance Program he dazzled New York city crowds with his powerful and emotive performance "Battle" in their final showcase, "Just Wanna Hoop."

Restore Your Roar: a Re-boot Camp

Amanda Trusty & Olivia Petzy

January 13, 2016 - January 20, 2016

About the Facilitator(s)

Amanda Trusty is a tap dancer, body love advocate, and blogger at amandatrustysays.com. Known primarily for her viral tap burlesque video to Katy Perry's "Roar", where she stripped down to her skivvies at Kalani in November 2013 and peeled the words "cellulite" and "fat" off her body to make a statement, she is a writer and blogger bringing awareness to the body image and eating disorder crisis that faces the entertainment industry. After a performance career in New York City that spanned the course of a decade, Amanda is now a full-time dance teacher on the Big Island of Hawai’i. In 2014, she was featured as one of Huffington Post’s top women bringing body positivity to dance. She also writes for Sadie Jane dancewear. She is an expert on Nutella.

Olivia Petzy is a performer, Shrink Session sweat therapist, writer, and gummy candy connoisseur. She spent four years in a theater conservatory where she learned that she loved theme parties and hated the way her body moved when dancing so much that she cried in every dance class. Sometimes she had four in one day. That's a lot of crying. After moving to New York City, Olivia stumbled into a Shrink Session class and discovered that it was possible to move your body in a way that feels freeing. Life changed, she became obsessed with sharing her unique spin on the class and empowering others to move with ease and joy, regardless of their level of dance skill or athleticism. She is a popular comedian and host in NYC and is late for everything because she’s snuggling with her dog Walter.

As a teacher she is known for her accessibility, goofy sense of humor and serious attitude of positive empowerment through the ring.

Luna has traveled to India via Samsung Mobile to promote the Olympic games through performance, performed at the 2014 IJA Cascade of Stars, and has worked with acclaimed contemporary circus companies such as Pendulum Aerial Arts, Quixotic Fusion, Madison House, Periplo Circus Convention, and many others.

Ecstatic Living Retreat

Maxwell Starkhouse & Lino Laure

September 29, 2015 - October 4, 2015

Aloha!

About the Facilitator(s)

Maxwell Starkhouse

Maxwell first came to the Big Island of Hawaii in 2001 as a volunteer at Kalani Honua. He soon discovered Ecstatic Dance and was so inspired by the musical, dance journey that he began to attend the weekly dances at Kalani as well as attending various yoga classes a few times a week.

In 2003 he completed his first yoga teacher training with Kathy Elder and began teaching weekly Intuitive Yoga classes. In the same year he became a Licensed Massage Therapist and began offering sessions. He then went on to travel to Chicago for a Yogic Arts teacher training and then onto India to practice Ashtanga Yoga in Kerala and discovered Vipassana Meditation in Gujarat.

When he returned to Hawaii and the dance community, he yearned for more tribal and world music. So this inspired him to become a DJ. In 2009, he DJ-ed at Kalani’s Ecstatic Dance and has been collecting music and DJ-ing ever since.

At Kalani, he also teaches Intuitive Yoga classes, Intuitive Aquatic Movement classes (in the warm therapy pool) and works as a Massage Therapist, offering sessions on the massage table and, uniquely, in the water. He also enjoys playing various musical instruments, spinning fire, bodysurfing and playing in Hawaii's nature.

Lino Laure

Lino discovered the joy of Ecstatic Dance at Kalani in 2003 when he moved to the Big Island of Hawaii 10 years ago. Dancing has always been part of his life and the nature of Ecstatic Dance, as a conscious dance process, fulfilled his spiritual inclinations.

In 2009 when Lino moved to Kalani, he accepted the honor of facilitator for Ecstatic Dance Hawaii (one of the largest venue in the US) and has been facilitator for Ecstatic Dance Hawaii since.

In his personal life, Lino has been practicing meditation for over thirty years and studied under the auspices of his teacher, JK Gurukal, a master healer and martial artist from Kerala, India, learning aspects of yoga, meditation, martial arts and the healing arts: applied sciences from the tradition of Dhanurveda.

Lino is also a painter and artist. He enjoys sharing all of his various skills by way of teaching and facilitating workshops and classes at Kalani, on the Big Island of Hawaii, where he also resides.
