Lone Wolves performance at ATS Homecoming, San Francisco, CA – Jan 15, 2016
Twenty-two dancers from around the world came together to perform pure ATS (both classic and moder, levels 1-3) at ATS Homecoming in San Francisco. This improvisational set was created with only a 3-minute rehearsal to establish a bare outline to the performance. Enjoy! [You will catch Cat Ellen leading a portion of the slow set in the middle of the performance, around 5:50.]
CaySwann Dance Collective: ATS Homecoming 2017 – Jan 21, 2017
CaySwann Dance Collective was put together by Cat Ellen with the assistance of Gaia Sophia, Kelli Ann, and Scheherazade Kessler. This was an unusual ATS set created specifically for the ATS Homecoming stage. We came from two states and four cities, and with only internet correspondence, personal rehearsal, and one amazing brainstorming session in a hotel room, were able to bring this unique ATS improvisation to the stage. This piece is performed to the soundtrack of “Music and the Mirror” from “A Chorus Line” — with Cat, on microphone, singing and dancing at the same time.
