This Tribal Fusion class is designed for the beginning belly dancer or anyone looking to revisit and practice some basic belly dance essentials. In this video, we will start by breaking down belly dance posture. Then we’ll work with some basic footwork and traveling hip locks, upper body isolations, and snake arms. Have a mat ready as we’ll begin with a short yoga and Pilates conditioning sequence.
In this Tribal Fusion class, we explore a simple traveling combination and then add arm movements on top. Basic hip and chest movement will also be drilled, with a focus on clean, strong, muscular articulation. A nice, long arm and shoulder drill is included to build strength and stamina for beautiful and graceful arms. We will warm-up and cool-down with a bit of yoga and Pilates so grab your yoga mat as well!
This combination includes a simple isolation pattern, hip work, a traveling step, and a slightly theatrical ending. It was created to be used over and over for several months: it begins simply and increases tempo three times so you can work at your current speed. It's suggested that you warm up a bit before trying this combination. This spotlight is from Rachel's "Up-Tempo Locks and Isolations Class".

Each movement is broken down, drilled, and then finally combined with complimentary movements and danced!
