Introduction to Datura Style™ Technique Class # 1 : Hip Mechanics

Rachel Brice, 01:03:29

In this Introduction to Datura Style™ Technique class, Rachel will introduce you to the basics of her personal format for belly dance, prepare you for the more challenging Datura Technique Studies, and show you how to improvise in this style as a soloist or in a group. Class # 1 focuses on hipwork on the up: hip lifts, bumps, the glute lock, and taxim. Rachel will breakdown all of these movements and then you will have the chance to dance them out in a fun improvisational drill. This series was designed to be used as a resource by anyone searching to clarify and strengthen their understanding of the fundamentals of Datura Style™ belly dance.

Grapevine Circle Combo

April Rose, 00:13:39

This fusion combination is all about traveling footwork that creates a spatial pattern on the dance floor. Using directional ballet terminology we will drill a Grapevine traveling step, 2-Step Turn, and 4-Step Turn. We will then arrange these traveling footwork movements into a combination that carves a large spatial pattern on the stage and add some arm embellishments. This belly dance spotlight is from April Rose's "Infusion: Indian Fusion Technique".
