What's In A Name?

What’s in a name?

As our ATS® family grows and we continue to add more opportunities for advanced training, we began to ponder what to call each new designation.  After much deliberation, we have created a “cheat sheet” for you to use when explaining who you are and what your relationship to FatChanceBellyDance, Inc. entails.

Please feel free to use these titles on your business cards, marketing materials, etc.

Stay tuned for our NEW CUSTOMIZABLE FatChanceBellyDance® business cards, postcards, and other promotional materials coming soon!!

FatChanceBellyDance® Studio Instructors- “FatChanceBellyDance® Studio Instructor”
The designation FCBD® Studio Instructor or FCBD® Instructor is reserved for only those instructors who teach at the home studio in San Francisco.

GS graduates- “American Tribal Style® Certified”
If you have completed your GS, but not your TT, then you are ATS® Certified.

TT graduates- “American Tribal Style® Certified Instructor”
If you have completed GS and TT, but not sought Sister Studio status, then you are an ATS® Certified Instructor.

Sister Studio approved TT graduates- “Sister Studio” or “FCBD® Sister Studio”
Sister Studio status is only for approved TT graduates.  You may also list that you carry the GS and TT certifications if you wish but you don’t need to do so.

SSCE participant- “Sister Studio re-certified 2015 (or insert year)”
Once you have completed your re-certification, then you can use the re-certified designation.  Re-certification must continue annually to keep the title.
