Video Description: This workshop will cover the fundamentals of Cabaret style floorwork. We will explore the 3 main building blocks of a well-rounded floor work routine: working postures, embellishment postures, and traveling and transitional movements, as well as descents and ascents. Basic belly dance isolations and hip work will be layered and drilled on top of various floorwork postures. We will then link movements and postures to create seamless floorwork sequences. Make sure the surface you are practicing on is safe for floor work and that your knees are comfortable, either using kneepads or a yoga mat for extra padding if you need it.

Pain In the Skin by Phoenix Dancer on 3/6/17

Hi Sedona, as always a great video! I have been away from doing floor work for years and though I have lost some of the strength that only doing floor work can give you I'm not too bad and my flexibility is fine. I found years ago when I was used to it it didn't hurt the skin of my knees. I used to live in a carpeted apartment which gave me just enough padding without needing knee pads. Then when I danced floor work on a hard floor my knees and the tops of my feet were fine. But since then when I have spent time away from it and have come back I have a regular hard floor to practice on and find a lot of pain in the skin of my knees and would in the top of my feet if I weren't wearing DanceShuz. I am hoping that over time my skin will grow accustomed and toughened to it because I seem to remember that it did before. I am really glad that it isn't in the actual joint of my knees itself but it's very frustrating. During this routine I had to pause the video and get creative with finding something to make into knee pads because I don't have any. I first used long socks and tied them around my knees and folded short socks in half and put them under the fabric of the long stock to be held against my knee. It helped but it did move around a bit and had to readjust. Then I tried wrapping and tieing winter scarves around my knees. This worked a little better. On a forum I found on-line a dancer said she uses small gel indoor soccer knee pads which she finds work well and are less bulky. How much do regular knee pads tend to cost? Thank you again so much Sedona for your wonderful videos and great teaching!

Everything more clear! by Daya Navilu on 2/18/17

Thank you Sedona for share your knowledge! Now I have more clear some transitions. Beautiful! Love Bellydance!♥♥♥

Sedona Soulfire:

Oh you are *SO* welcome, I'm really glad this helped! I know what you mean about transitions, I remember feeling kind of "stuck" in certain positions on the floor when I first starting exploring this style, seamless transitions really make it what it is! Blessings!

Very Helpful by Bonnie Licameli on 2/16/16

I've been trying my hand at footwork for some time now. While I'm fairly good at things like side planks and other more stationary moves, I usually struggle with traveling footwork, Berber walk in particular. I'm so glad Sedona covered that among other moves and showed how to make these moves look elegant and not feel so awkward. Thank you so much for doing this!

Sedona Soulfire:

Oh yes! The traveling can be tricky, I'm glad to hear the tools in the class are helping! Best of luck working with it all. Even just having two modes of travel that you are comfy with can add such depth and dimension to an entire floor routine! Sending you infinite dance blessings S~

So useful! by Chantal on 1/26/16

I feel that I have my tried and true ways of getting up and down from floorwork, but tend to run out of stuff to do when I'm actually down there :) Thanks for all the lovely poses and ideas! So much to play with!

Sedona Soulfire:

Yay! Wishing you all the best in your Dance Play : ) Enjoy It!

AMAZING by Omega on 1/15/16

I wasn't prepared for how awesome this was! I'm so glad to see Sedona bringing back floorwork. This is the best floorwork instruction I've ever had. But I REALLY recommend having knee pads - just having extra padding on a yoga mat or a blanket wasn't enough for me personally.

Sedona Soulfire:

YES!!! Let's bring it back!! This strong earthy expression is so wonderful on so many levels! I TOTALLY practice in knee pads, they definitely help for an extended practice. I'm so gad you enjoyed it, thank you! Many Dance Blessings out to YOU Omega!
