The belly dance styles presented by these nine top instructors range from Classic Belly Dance to Fusion, Tribal, and Gothic.
Instruction includes step-by-step breakdown of each dance and practice with music (or music and vocal prompts) for each combination.
Each choreography conjures up an evocative archetypal image, and emphasizes story-telling through dance. In addition to a full breakdown of every choreography and step-by-step movement instruction, each choreagraphy instruction segment includes a demonstration of each dance, comments in-depth from the instructor, as well as a full theater performance in costume.
Additional features enrich each instructor's section: Ayshe and Isidora offer tips on the use of hand veils, the sword, and 'wings-of-Isis.' You will learn about body conditioning for dance, emotional expression, and projecting a message to an audience through dance. Sera Solstice discusses the development of 'meaningful dance,' Darshan demonstrates creating a sacred space for your dance, the value of dance as a personal ritual, and more.
