FCBD: Who We Are


This is a 1997 video of Carolena talking about what ATS is and isn’t, and specifically some of her theories about the evolution of dance, motivation of feminine display and beauty, and more. It’s very brief, but enjoyable.

My favorite dance moment is right at the beginning. She is just doing a simple little hip bump, her arms posed so beautifully, and just turning slowly, to show all sides of the simple move. It is done with such grace, control, and confidence, it strikes me at my core. Inspiring. So little can have such impact, it’s easy to forget you don’t necessarily always need all the bells and whistles. Just your own energy and confidence, and the simplest things are powerful.
