Technique for Teachers FCBD® Style

Technique for Teachers FCBD® Style Intensive

22 – 25 July, 2024, 4 days, 20 hours

This course is part of the FCBD® Style European Summer School event in Soest, Germany.

Student requirements
This course is not for beginners.
Students must have completed FCBD® Teacher Training.
You do not have to be a certified studio.

Each day will consist of a detailed breakdown of two core moves from the FCBD®Style vocabulary followed by chorus drills. Each participant will have an opportunity to lead a two-song drill and receive feedback on their movement technique. We’ll have plenty of time for questions and answers, and bonus drills as well.

Steps to be broken down and drilled include:

Day 1: Shimmy Family • Taxeem
Day 2: Egyptian Family and Spins • Turns
Day 3: Arabic Family • Body Waves
Day 4: Pivot Bump Family • Circle Step and Torso Twist

Each student must submit a dance bio, limited to one page upon acceptance to the program. This should include their dance experience as it relates FCBD® and what you want to achieve at the Intensive. A photo is appreciated along with any personal comments, but not a „resume“ type listing of everything they have ever done!

Each student will receive a certificate of participation at the end of the course but must be present for the entire 20 hours, no exceptions. Students must be proficient in English.

More information about the course on the website.


The course will be taught by Carolena Nericcio, the creator of FatChance® Style herself. Assisted by DeAnna Padrón Freeman and Kelley Beeston. Both are graduates of Advanced Teacher Training and are FatChance® Continuing Education (FCCE) instructors.

Kelley Beeston and Miriam Schroth are the organisers of this event. We are very happy that we can bring this great offer to Europe. This is the first time that the Advanced Teacher Training will ever be held outside the USA. Why only one location? Travelling has not become easier and cheaper in recent years, so we have decided to choose only one location for this event. And since Soest offers everything we need (space, accommodation, good travel connections, in the middle of Europe, …), we decided on this.

We are looking forward to welcoming you in Soest.

Kelley and Miriam
