Charlotte Wassell

ATS® (American Tribal Style) is a colourful and dynamic style of belly dance where dancers interact with eachother improvisationally.  Created in San Francisco in the 1980’s by Carolena Nericcio, it is inspired by Middle-Eastern dance, North African Folk Dances, Flamenco and Indian dance.

Charlotte is co-founder of transcontinental ATS® troupe Ter’zím, now dually based in Brighton UK and Cape Town, South Africa. As a Sister Studio to Fat Chance Belly Dance® in San Francisco, she is committed to providing quality ATS instruction, regularly travelling to train with ATS Masters, FCBD members and Carolena herself. She believes in the importance of maintaining the integrity of Classic ATS in order to dance and connect with others worldwide whilst nurturing the fun and creativity it inspires.
