The sword technique presented is a combination of logical movements INSPIRED from Carolena Nericcio's American Tribal Style (of FatChanceBellyDance (r) as well as movements acquired over years from great sword performances.
'Creating a specific format for my ATS sword performances increased my comfort, confidence, and ability without compromising the magic of the ATS group dance experience. Choreographing routines can work against the organic presentation of ATS. Additionally, my sword format has increased my overall enjoyment of dancing with a sword.'
