Belly Dance is an art with many nuances and complexities. In this workshop, Tamalyn explores three fundamental concepts: isolations, integration and layering that are keys to elegant and expressive belly dancing. Tamalyn breaks down fundamental isolations and demonstrates how to integrate isolated movements to allow them to radiate throughout the body. Basic layering is explored and used to demonstrate how layers can be used in isolation and integration to vary your dance. You will also learn the difference between these three concepts, which is fundamental in understanding Arabic vs. American or western styles.
We will pinpoint and perfect the basic slow movements that comprise Oriental dance: Slides, circles, undulations, and figure 8's. This belly dance spotlight is from Tamalyn's "The Subtle Art: Isolation, Integration, and Layering" workshop.
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".
In this belly dance spotlight we will mix and match many of the basic isolations to create complex and interesting patterns. This spotlight is part of Sedona's American Cabaret style workshop: "Interesting and Innovative Isolations".
In this belly dance spotlight we will break down and drill all of the basic, head, chest, hip, and shoulder isolations.

In this spotlight, Sedona will lead you through 5 vintage American Cabaret belly dance hip movements inspired by dancers from the 60's, 70's, and 80's - the Heel Drop, Double Drop, Bumps, Back and Forth Twist, and the 3/4 twist. This belly dance spotlight is from Sedona's "Goldmine #2 : Vintage Twists and Traveling Steps" workshop.
This workshop will introduce the basic components of Rajasthani folk dance such as: Posture, mudras (hand positions) and the basic foot pattern. We will take four dance movements, the "Basic Step", "Chedi Arm Variation", "Ghoomar Arm Variation", and the "Ghoomar Spin", that will introduce the student to movements of several folk styles from within Rajasthan. This workshop is perfect as a first introduction to Rajasthani dance, as well as for a dancer who wants to brush up on fundamental movements in this style. Suggested movement attire is a large spinning skirt and dancing barefoot is ideal for stomping out the foot pattern.
This move is a play on the classic American Cabaret hip drop. It is built for the beladi rhythm and highlights the character of the beladi with a playful bounce in the hip. Three options are presented for differing levels of dancer and we drill this move from slow to fast. This belly dance spotlight is from Henna's "Classic Egyptian: Technique Workshop".
This belly dance workshop is a study in combining basic movements together to create clear, distinct layers of simultaneous movement. We will address layering a variety of basic upper body movements with a variety of basic lower body movements. This class is targeted toward the dancer who is beyond beginner and is ready to move into more complex multi-tasking territory.
