Body Art Motion dancers performing Hot Pot ITS (Improvisational Tribal Style) LIVE with CloZee at Muzique Feb.17, 2017!

Improvisational Tribal Style Belly Dance (I.T.S)

BAM is one of Canada's few certified Unmata Hot Pot I.T.S (Improvisational Tribal Style) schools.  We love Hot Pot I.T.S!  It's medicine for the mind, body and soul - and a wonderful form of mental and physical fitness.  The system was designed as a dance language, originally inspired by A.T.S (American Tribal Style) - created by Carolena Nericcio.  I.T.S. is a modernized fusion of this system, created by Amy Sigil and the Unmata team out of Sacramento California. 

The technique is detailed and specific (in muscular control and memory), which makes it a challenging mind-body practice akin to yoga or martial arts.  The discipline promotes self-practice and time spent practicing the dance within a group.  This practice cultivates values such as physical fitness, responsibility, confidence, leadership, supportive following, and being a good team player. Imagine a marriage between team sport and dance!  

I.T.S. is designed so that it can be danced to ANY MUSIC!  In classes, we often use World Fusion Electronic DJ sets that provide a variety of slow and fast rhythms.  At home, you can practice to whatever music gets you moving!
