Makeup and Costuming

FatChanceBellyDance®Style Makeup and Costuming

Make-up and costume are magic and transformation. Through out history, women have used this art to both create and enhance the aura of natural beauty. The basic elements of stage makeup, contem-porary and traditional costuming techniques and the wisdom of folklore are reflected in our distinctive style.

Carolena Nericcio is the creator of FatChanceBellyDance® Style.

In 1974, Carolena began dancing with Masha Archer and the San Francisco Classic Dance Troupe. Masha’s style was an eclectic blend of classic Egyptian, Folkloric, and any other influence that she found enticing. In 1987, after the SF Classic Dance Troupe disbanded, Carolena began teaching in a small studio in the Noe Valley Ministry. Her only goal was to teach people to dance so she could have dance partners.

Being young and tattooed, Carolena attracted other young people living alternative lifestyles. The Modern Primitives movement was also underway. Tattoos and primitive styles of body adornment were the vogue. Carolena and her students performed at tattoo shows and conventions and became well known in the City by the Bay.
